Carey Perloff directs Hend Ayoub

in Ayoub's one-woman play "HOME?"

at the Corner at Whitman-Walker in Washington DC

October 29 - November 10, 2022


Excerpt from the Peter Marks' Review in the Washington Post:


“Home?,” staged in a newly renovated storefront space, the Corner at Whitman-Walker, reunites Ayoub with Carey Perloff, who directed her nearly three years ago to mesmerizing effect in Arena Stage’s Afghan play A Thousand Splendid Suns. They again prove to be a mutually catalyzing team.

The conceit may constitute standard operating procedure for autobiography in the theater world, as an actor’s coming-of-age story tends to follow well-trod paths, involving cycles of high hopes, auditions and rejections. But Ayoub overlays “Home?” (subtitled “Or a Palestinian Woman’s Pursuit of Life, Liberty and Happiness”) with an artistic paradox, one that gives the 80-minute performance piece a more poignant core.

Excerpt from the Roger Caitlin Review in the Broadway World:

Director Carey Perloff uses the white-walled Corner at Whitman-Walker well; big projections on a back wall are so effective you'd wish they were used more. The thumping of muffled dance music might seem part of the production but is only sound bleeding from another hopping 14th Street NW bistro next door.

Excerpt from the Sophia Howes' Review in the DC Theater Arts:

What is it like to be a Palestinian born and raised in Israel? Home?, by Hend Ayoub, is an autobiographical one-woman play about a young woman’s exploration of this dual identity. Ayoub and Director Carey Perloff’s production is entertaining and essential.
