"There's no-one in the streets but us. You run that way and I'll run this way. Whoever gets back to the front door first and without getting shot, wins." In a Palestinian town eleven year-old Lubna and twelve year-old Khalil are playing on the empty stairwell in their apartment block. As the siege intensifies outside, fear for their safety becomes as crippling as the conflict itself. Dalia Taha's play gives us a new way of seeing how war fractures childhood.
