About the show

The Israeli Artists Project presents the NY premiere of this original Israeli play exploring how far people will go for their loved ones and personal interests when faced with tough moral dilemmas.  More…

The Israeli Jewish-Arab conflict is used as a backdrop and a catalyst to the plot of this play, but the focus is squarely on its characters, not politics. Choices they make are revisited, with the aftermath revealing tragic consequences.

The play will be performed in Hebrew and English on alternate nights by the same cast.
