In the tunnel

A play by Roy Chen

Who triggers and who lowers the trigger in the world, ruled by mass media, in the world of broken communication.

Political satire

 

The play by: Roy Chen
Inspired by Danis Tanovic “No man's land"
Directed by: Irad Rubinstein

 

Israeli soldiers, a beat-up reservist Iftach and “green” draftee Tzlil, are buried in the tunnel. They are together with two Palestinians - Mansur and Hisam. Enemies in the mousetrap, they try to find their way out. To kill or to save each other?

 

They try to survive in this suffocating underground. Above them - our customary political carnival, absurd, dominant and inherent background of our daily life.

Is theater the mirror of reality? Can it reflect and judge this reality “here and now”?

 

To whom and what to believe? Who triggers and who lowers the trigger in the world, ruled by mass media, in the world of broken communication?

 

First Perfomance: 11/1/2017

Duration - 1 hour 45 minutes without intermission.
