Adah Kay is a social scientist, academic and writer. Between 2002-6 she lived and worked in Ramallah and with two colleagues wrote Stolen Youth (Pluto Press, 2004) about Palestinian children imprisoned by the Israeli military. She continues to write about Palestinian issues, both in the West Bank which she continues to visit, and in the UK. She recently co- wrote with Nadia Abu Zahra Unfree in Palestine (Pluto Press 2013) which is about identity documentation and movement restrictions and the two are currently working on a book about the right to family life and divided families. Her experience and writing about life under occupation in Palestine inspired her collaboration with playwright Sonja Linden on Welcome to Ramallah, with whom she continues to work in the Visible Theatre Ensemble.
