See it if you want to experience a subtle meditation on fear. Although the focus is Libyan Jews during WWII, they could be any minority caught in war
Don't see it if you need a clear plot. A play within a play, the main character acts out the story she is telling but key information comes only at the end.
See it if You are not intimidated by 65 min in 4 languages as history unfolds w narrator interpreter on minimal stage.
Don't see it if You want to smile. If a slow walk to death is not your taste. The title tells it all.
“‘Benghazi Bergen-Belsen’ takes on some of the heaviest possible topics with a delicate balance, simultaneously poetic and devastating…The scenes between Silvana and Rebecca are breathtaking…Butcher and Azrielant, both admirable performers, pull the audience's heart strings with their vulnerability and courage…The deeply personal tale of a young woman's Holocaust journey will leave you enthralled with the beauty of the survivors' love, their strength, and their unsurmountable pain."
"The play is well constructed and staged, though at times the direction by Michal Gamily is a bit amateurish, but overall it was well executed thanks to the touching performance of Lilly Leah Azrielant as Rebecca and Mohammad Bakri as Rebecca’s Father...Lahav Timor’s take is powerful and very well articulated. The play manages to grasp your full attention, until the very end. Unfortunately the show resolves in the last five minutes and this feels a bit chaotic."
