A sacred tree, a chalk circle that no one can cross, Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel watching over all. Two young lovers Mahmud and Yezida come from very different worlds. He is Muslim, she is Yazidi, a secretive religion, often mistaken for Satanism. Separated by persecution and intolerance, their families must come to terms with the real price of their hatred, and the real possibility of their loss...
A powerful twist on Romeo and Juliet, Mahmud and Yezida is one of the most beloved and performed texts in Turkish theatre. For this brand new production, award-winning director Aylin Bozok returns to direct Arcola Ala-Turka, one of the UK's leading Turkish language theatre companies.
