Reading Hebron

BY JASON SHERMAN
9 February 2011 — 12 March 2011

In February 1994 Dr. Baruch Goldstein, a settler in Kiryat Arba, walked into the Mosque in the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron and shot dead 29 Muslims at prayer and wounded 125 others. Within two days the Israeli Government set up a Commission of Inquiry.

Nathan Abramowitz seeks the truth for himself about what happened, and why, and asks himself whether he too, as a non-Israeli Jew, is also in some way implicated in those deaths.

This is the British premiere of an exciting, provocative, fast moving and very theatrical Canadian play that deals with issues of concern to us all.
