About this show

Yitzhak Rabin has been assassinated, hopes for peace are foundering, and the inhabitants of a Jerusalem trauma ward search desperately for a way to make their voices heard. What they devise, a passionately contentious enactment reflecting the chaos inside and outside the hospital, forms the core of Motti Lerner's remarkable new play. Based on shattering real-life events, The Murder of Isaac imagines a wildly theatrical response to one particular horror while offering a resonant examination of the legacy of violence that we share. This American premiere offers an extraordinary opportunity to discover the heart and voice of one of Israel's most compelling contemporary writers. Irene Lewis directs.
