As proud sponsors of Sydney Festival 2017, El-Phoenician will be host to the world premiere of Hakawati by The National Theatre Of Parramatta, under the direction of Wayne Harrison at The Private Room on Church, Parramatta.

Inspired by the ancient Arabic traditions of story-telling and breaking bread, Hakawati celebrates food, music and the telling of tales during a series of balmy summer nights at Parramatta’s El-Phoenician restaurant.

Hakawati, an Arabic word, translates as ‘the teller of tales’ and was the major form of entertainment in many Arabic communities before television arrived.
