Michael Edwards and Carole Winter present the Traverse Theatre Company production Damascus.
Paul is here to sell English-language textbooks. It’s Valentine’s Day and he’d rather be at home with his wife. He begins negotiations with his Syrian contact, Muna. Can he seal the deal? Misunderstandings multiply until their presumptions about one another fall away and new possibilities emerge. Laughter, romance and tragedy meet in a new play by David Greig.

“The rarest of things: a well-made and hugely entertaining contemporary comedy”
