On Monday 16th March the government announced that unnecessary social contact should be avoided, and that theatres (along with other public spaces) should be avoided. The safety of our customers, volunteers and staff is paramount, and in light of this announcement it is with a heavy heart that we have closed the Fisher Theatre with immediate effect, until we receive further instruction that it is safe to reopen.
All shows in March and April have been cancelled or postponed and customers who have already booked tickets will be contacted.
The situation regarding shows in May will be monitored and updates posted on our Website and Facebook pages.
Thank you for your support of the Fisher Theatre and your understanding at this difficult time.
An enjoyable Palestinian road movie set in Nazareth, which interleaves simmering tension in the Israeli town with moments of terrific comedy. A traditional father is reunited with his fiery, ex-pat son when the two are obliged to spend time together delivering family wedding invitations according to age-old tradition – the ‘wajib’ of the title, which loosely translates as ‘social duty’. With its rich sense of place and multidimensional characters, Wajib is too seductive to resist. Starring Mohammad and Saleh Bacri. Director: Annemarie Jacir. Runtime: 96 minutes. Palestine/France/Colombia/Germany/UAE/Qatar/Norway 2017. In Arabic with English subtitles.
