Meir Shalev first time writes specifically for the theater. It is a satirical play featuring biblical characters. 3,500 years after they were buried in the Cave of the Patriarchs, three fathers and three mothers awaken, reflecting with each other on parenthood and marriage, faith and history. Then, however, they encounter the modern world outside the cave. An inspiring and witty story from one of Israel's most celebrated writers awaits us.
