    Oran Mor’s One Day in Spring series culminated with 24 Hours in the Middle East or How to Stage a Revolution in 18 Easy Lessons. An Arab-Scottish creation from many writers still living through the Arab Spring, these lessons were presented with emotion-stirring drama by Seif Abdelfattah and Sara Shaarawi who brought to us the complex emotions of being in an uprising – exhilaration, fear, violence, love, laughter, stress as violent reality strikes. Spontaneous youth-driven energy and electronic communication drive the protests. But for the Grace of God or Allah these revolutionaries could be my grandchildren.
