This exquisitely balanced play packs quite a formidable political punch. It will be of great interest to anyone concerned about Middle East geopolitics and the consequences of impending political change.” - The Chicago Tribune
“A pressure cooker of interfamilial and political tension.” - The Washington Post
June 17-July 1, 2009
Brooks Theatre, The Cleveland Play House, 8500 Euclid Ave, Cleveland OH 44106
Written by contemporary Israeli playwright Motti Lerner
Directed by Scott Plate
An emotionally charged drama set in 2012, PANGS OF THE MESSIAH portrays the struggles and conflict faced by a family of religious Zionist pioneers after the signing of a Peace Accord by the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority. This thought-provoking piece of theater encourages understanding of the wide-ranging convictions, passions and perspectives of the Israeli people and of the diversity and strife that exists in contemporary Israeli society.
Each performance will include a pre-performance talk one hour prior to curtain and a post performance discussion immediately following.
