About this show

Theater J presents the English language world premiere of Hillel Mitelpunkt's The Accident. In this gripping, universal drama, as much about the state of modern marriage as it is about the State of Israel, a fatal accident on New Year's Eve leaves a Chinese immigrant laborer dead on the road. Two couples' intersecting lives unravel in the wake of their decision not to report the collision. When the daughter of one of the couples discovers the hidden secret, she undertakes a moral interrogation of the Israeli upper-middle class, looking closely at the state of affairs her generation has inherited. With marital indiscretions rising to the surface and moral corruption exposed in the professional arena as well, this play, from popular Israeli playwright Hillel Mitelpunkt, takes a biting look at Israeli society and the way we live now.
