WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Inside the secretive world of the ritual bath, eight women's stories unfold in this sensitive depiction of religious observance and evolving feminist consciousness. When Shira, a new bath attendant, arrives, she opens a Pandora's box of issues, revealing long kept secrets. A knowledgeable and respectful examination of traditions and ritual, this contemporary play explores the ever-evolving position of women in a changing Israeli society. (Note: this play contains nudity.) This show is part of VOICES FROM A CHANGING MIDDLE EAST: VOICE OF THE WOMAN, which will feature readings of plays by female Israeli and Arab authors.
