The great UK entertainer and human rights activist Mark Thomas and his colleague Sam Beale visit to the Jenin Freedom Theatre in Palestine

29 January 2017

The great UK entertainer and human rights activist Mark Thomas and his colleague Sam Beale have just returned from a working visit to the Jenin Freedom Theatre in Palestine where they planned with about a dozen Palestinian actors a new comedy project. Mark and a team will visit the JFT again in April and over a period of three weeks hold workshops and training sessions in stand-up comedy and start writing a comedy show to tour the UK in 2018. IMET2000 is supporting this project as part of its support for cultural expansion of the arts (theatre, music, dance, writing and so on) vital to the psycho-social fabric of a society under military occupation’.
