About this show

Israel's celebrated Gesher Theatre will return to New York City October 6 and 7 with the political satire In the Tunnel, by Roy Chen, inspired by the Best Foreign Language Oscar-winning film No Man's Land by Danis Tanovic. Firas Nassar, the breakout star for his role as Nidal al-Makdasi in the hit Israeli Netflix series Fauda, now in its second season, will make his NY stage debut in this production. Two Israeli soldiers and two Palestinians are trapped in a tunnel dug by Hamas between Gaza and Israel. Enemies snared in a mousetrap, they try to find their way out. Should they kill or save each other? Meanwhile, above ground, a political and media circus is attempting to cover the event. The cast of nine is directed by award-winner Irad Rubenstein.
