Mahmoud Nowara, a Palestinian journalist and creative writer born and
raised in Damascus, spent 12 years writing for news outlets across
the Arab world, while also publishing creative pieces in numerous local
journals. After the eruption of the Syrian conflict, Nowara fled to Beirut,
where he composed the original Arabic version of this monodrama.
