Voices From A Changing Middle East Festival
A workshop presentation in collaboration with the Cameri Theatre and the Arab-Hebrew Theatre of Jaffa
By Motti Lerner
Directed by Sinai Peter
Featuring Michael Tolaydo
An Israeli homage to All My Sons set in Haifa during the first Intifada. Giora is a young professor engaged to Neta but in love with Samia, the Palestinian daughter of a family friend who becomes troubled when Giora's father's company begins building on the site of a battle that took place 40 years ago. Giora struggles to find the truth about his father's war-time secrets, confronting the causes of his brother's death and how he came to incur his own injuries in Lebanon. As Giora's family presses him to look forward, not back, the play asks how we can move forward toward peace while still wrestling with the ghosts of war. From the author of "Pangs of the Messiah" and the winner of the Prime Minister of Israel Award for Writers, staged by the director of "Return to Haifa" with designers from the Israeli premiere.
This presentation is part of the Voices from a Changing Middle East Festival. Additional Voices from a Changing Middle East programs to be announced!
