    Synopsis: In the summer of 1988, a horrifying rape was perpetrated on Kibbutz Shomrat in northern Israel. This shocking true story serves as the foundation for one of the best known and most successful Israeli plays ever written. Emotionally charged, dramatic and chilling, it will leave you questioning your judgment.




  • Synopsis: Yoni runs away from school, from home, from himself. In this moving one-man play, Ben Yishai provides the audience an experience of what it’s like feeling like an outsider, feeling different, being differently-abled, yet, at the same time whole.




  • Synopsis: Fertile, a one-act monodrama based on a true story, deals with blurring the lines of gender identity. Fertile was born with a gift—she was born without a uterus. An inherited genetic abnormality makes her barren at birth. Throughout her life, she is marked by society and by herself as faulty and defective. At 26, following a romantic encounter with the man of her dreams, Fertile decides to reexamine the “broken” parts of her life, and sets on a journey of healing herself. Her journey makes her confront all sides of her femininity and her right to exist as a woman, despite her inability to fulfill the basic female mission, bringing children into the world.
