Luna - our first-ever childrens play

13, 14 & 15 of February 2019

A play for children and anyone who has ever been a child, about family, friends, and the ways our differences can bring us together. 

LUNA by Ramon Esquivel, tells the story of Soledad, the daughter of migrant farm workers. Because they never stay in one place for very long, her only friend is Luna, the moon. But Soledad dreams of some more down to earth friends too. With the advice and encouragement of Luna, Soledad finds that she’s just got to take a little risk, and is able to make not one, but two new friends! When this new development clashes with the way her family has organized their life following the work and harvests, only Luna can guess what will happen.

 

LUNA is a play about family, about friendship, and the ways in which our differences are what make us most like one another. 

This play was one of the winners of our "Run your own project"-Contest and was sent in by Abraham Benson-Goldberg who also directed the play.

Thank you for flying Hell-Al!

Starring Jeremie Bracka and Yisrael Campbell. 

 

Using storytelling, stand-up and mockumentary, 'Thank you for flying Hell Al' is a Jewish comedy show on Israel and the experience of making Aliyah. Through a multitude of theatrical portraits, it uniquely showcases different Anglo, Russian, French, Arab and Israeli voices around migration and living in Israel as newcomers. The show counter-points a range of monologues between landlords, tax drivers, real-estate agents, government officials and arriving at Ben Gurion airport. From security checks to CNN, this production also satirizes political and media commentary on Israel
