The Whore From Ohio

Coming on October 6th at NYR Kamer Theater

Hanocj Levin’s

Hanoch Levin is Israels greatest playwright to date. A post-modernist often called the  Israeli Beckett,” he remained a controversial figue until his untimely death at the age of 56 in 1999. The government often attempted to shut down his overtly political plays, but never succeeded in gagging him or diminishing the Israeli public’s affection for him.
 
“Di Zoyne Fun Ohio” is a play about the relative spiritual value of longing versus reality. “If I forget thee O Jerusalem may I forget my right hand.” For many centuries the Jewish people have harbored an intensely spiritual longing for Eretz Yisrael, and the coming of Meshiekh. In this play Levin poses the question: were we better off with the longing than with the reality?
 
A thought provoking black farce for those who don’t mind a bit of vulgar fun, tragic observations about human  and family relations, and spiritual seeking.
