Making its Washington debut after its heralded Off-Broadway run earlier this season, the Israeli-American comic chameleon Iris Bahr (of Curb Your Enthusiasm) brings her hit show Dai (Enough) to open Theater J's Voices From a Changing Middle East Festival. The show will be presented in the Milton Theatre at Studio Theatre.
Israeli-American Iris Bahr leads the way into the colorful world of a Tel Aviv café and the lives of 11 inhabitants from every strata of Israeli society only minutes before a terrible calamity. Through Bahr's remarkable characterizations, these eccentric, humorous, lost souls come to life in this moving and important play; one that The New York Times says packs "a jolt that is undeniable," that you "are likely to feel for days after." Bahr's ability to find the humor and humanity in even the most dire and tragic of circumstances makes this show an emotional roller coaster, veering from the hilarious to the serious on a subject close to her heart and mind, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
