Rest Upon the Wind play celebrates Khalil Gibran
London - Agencies

Rest Upon the Wind play celebrates Khalil Gibran Rest Upon the Wind is the story of late 19th century Middle Eastern immigrants forced through famine, oppression and bloody sectarian wars to flee their countries and seek refuge and then suffer alienation in America. Nowaday we think that America’s difficulties with the Arabs started with Osama Bin Laden and George Bush. However the confrontation began a hundred years earlier.
Played by actor and writer Nadim Sawalha, the play celebrates Khalil Gibran (Lebanese-American artist and poet author of \"The Prophet\", 1923) through his relationship with his sister Marianna as they struggle to adapt to life in America. Memories of childhood in Mount Lebanon are juxtaposed with the everyday bustle and music of the Lebanese enclave in Chinatown, Boston.
The story of the difficult birth of a book that is still being read and quoted by millions of people across the world. Early in his life Khalil Gibran’s path was that of a freedom fighter pitched against the Ottoman Empire. He was the first Arab in exile to alert the people back home to the oppression visited upon them by their corrupt leaders.
Later on he took the path of a seer and a truth seeker, pitched against a tainted self and a tainted humanity. That personal and spiritual struggle culminated in the writing of The Prophet.
The production will be showing at the Riverside Studios from: June 12 to June 17.
Riverside Studios are located at Crisp Road, Hammersmith, London W6 9RL.
Tickets are priced at 22.50 GBP.
