INSIGHTS into what it has been like to be a Palestinian in Gaza over the past few decades is at the heart of a play to be performed next Thursday, March 11.

The St Albans branch of Amnesty International with the Student Law Society of the University of Herts is hosting the play entitled Journey Through Thorns: A Personal Story of Courage, Vision and Hope.

It will take the form of a dramatised reading with video clips, slides and music. Written and presented by Mohamed Altawil, David Harrold and Sylvia Pepper, it is the story of Mohamed's early life and why he decided to dedicate his professional life to the work of The Palestine Trauma Centre which provides support of the traumatised people of Gaza.

The performance takes place at 7.30pm in the main lecture theatre of the university's faculty of law in Hatfield Road, St Albans, and it will be followed by a discussion. There is no charge but donations would be welcome.
