The Al-Saraya and Jaffa Theaters jointly present the Third Jaffa Festival of Contemporary Arabic Culture May 10 to 12 at the Jaffa Theater in Old Jaffa. It opens with a musical performance at 8:30 pm on the theater plaza, to which entrance is free.

Among the shows, panels, plays and other events is “Jaffa thought the eyes of its residents,” a photo exhibition in the theater foyer.

There’s also Bacchus at Acre by the brilliant Lamis Amar (first prize winner at this year’s TheaterNetto), a staged play reading featuring Amar and Halifa Natur among others.
