Damage by Moroccan writer Kamal Khalladi was first performed in this English translation by Houda Echouafni as a rehearsed reading at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2008.
It was developed as part of an ambitious project by the Royal Court Theatre's International Department and the British Council, working with twenty-one writers from across the Near East and North Africa.
Damage is also available in the collection Plays from the Arab World.
