About this show

The Last Virgin is based on the forays of playwright Tuvia Tenenbom earlier this year into the Arab world where he lived with Bedouin and Palestinians, and into Europe where he met with the classmates of Muhammad Atta. By posing as a "Devout Muslim" in Amman, a "German Christian" in Ramallah and a "Hasidic Jew" in Hamburg, Tuvia allowed the people he met to feel comfortable, thus share with him their most intimate views. And while the show professes love and passion for its characters, it contains more than a grain of deafening sadness for the tortured consequence of their actions. The Last Virgin has been co-written with the Maria Lowy, a German journalist, who had spent much time in the Middle East and is enamored by its people.
