In an initiative organised with the British Council, the best of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia and Syria will soon be at the Royal Court's Sloane Square stage.
Panel discussions with the writers, music, dance and food from the region will also be on offer. It's the perfect invitation for a fresh perspective on an often one-sided story.
