GREY ROCK is commissioned and produced by Remote Theater Project in association with the non-profit organization GOH Productions.

GREY ROCK is by Palestine’s leading playwright/director, Amir Nizar Zuabi. A Palestinian man dreams of reaching the moon. He builds a rocket inside his shed in the West Bank. When his family discovers his plan, chaos ensues. This humorous, poetic work features a 5-member cast (from the West Bank and inside Israel) and renowned theater/screen actor, Khalifa Natour. Commissioned by U.S.-based Remote Theater Project to address English speaking communities, GREY ROCK is about the inalienable right to dream. Co-produced by Bonnie Sue Stein (GOH Productions) and premiered at La MaMa Theater in NYC, January 2019.


Performed in English. 

Run Time: 1 hour and 35 minutes

GREY ROCK is supported by grants from CEC ArtsLink, Left Tilt Fund, Qattan Foundation, Still Point Fund, Tajwaal Foundation and private donors.

The playwright invokes the spirit of this complex and multi-layered land and its people’s grief and desperation brilliantly.

- Arjun Rajkhowa, Arts Hub, Melbourne
This time there is something genius.

- Actor Motaz Malhees
It [GREY ROCK] is a beautiful metaphor for the persistence of the Palestinian struggle, transmitted to us generationally through our literary heroes who went to the moon, and brought us together in love and defiance.
