The Singing Stones is a triad of short plays, each offering a poetic, fearless and sometimes funny exploration of women and the Arab revolutions.

From the heroines of Tahrir Square to the female fighting forces defending the borders of Kurdistan, from the women who snitched on Gaddafi to a band of quarrelling artists struggling to invent a future female revolutionary icon.

Was the Arab Spring the greatest missed opportunity of the 21st century?


“You can always tell a dictator by his roots. They all dye their hair that dodgy soot black. The minute they do, they should be frog marched off and lynched in the public square. That simple pre-emptive action would save several genocides!"

“Trilogy of shorts about women in Arab Spring is celebratory, but too long and too depressing”

“Mama Quilla's triad of plays has a good message but the production is lacking”
