His radio piece Escape from Gaza was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2011.
Hajja Souad, an 80-year old Palestinian woman living on the besieged Gaza Strip, knows about business.
She has survived decades of wars and oppression through making shrouds for the dead.
A compelling black comedy, The Shroud Maker delves deep into the intimate life of ordinary Palestinians to weave a highly distinctive path through Palestine's turbulent past and present.
Loosely based on a real life character still living in Gaza, this one-woman comedy weaves comic fantasy and satire with true stories told first hand to the writer, and offers a vivid portrait of Palestinian life in Gaza underscored with gallows humour.
