Stolen Dreams is a play about love, suffering, deception, destruction and the dialogue between violence and culture. It is ultimately a homage to a symbol of culture, The Freedom Theatre co-founder Juliano Mer Khamis.
The play was written and performed by The Freedom Theatre’s youth acting group.
Stolen Dreams was supported by Sida, as part of the PAN program.
