The Kennedy Center says:
A Palestinian man decides to build a rocket to the moon in a shed.
“This show is about people, about relationships between a father and a daughter, a mentor and an apprentice, a woman and her suitors,” says writer and director Amir Nizar Zuabi. “Building a rocket is also a clear allegory of making art, for creating something extraordinary that the whole world must notice. If someone can get a rocket to the moon from Palestine, it’s a celebration of our creativity, of our ingenuity. The rocket proves that we can be something.”
