About this product
- DescriptionSet in a Tel Aviv cafe in the moments before a suicide bomber enters, Iris Bahr's 2008 Lucille Lortel Award - winning DAI (eugh) courageously speaks to tragic current events. Bahr plays eleven different characters who span the ideological and class spectrum of Israeli society, including a Zionist kibbutznik, an evangelical from America funding an Armageddon fantasy, a West Bank settler, a soty expat living in Long Island, and a Palestinian professor trying to keep her son from taking the path of extremism. Thanks to the emotional depth and honesty with which Bahr endows these characters and their individual stories, a complex portrait of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict emerges. Alternately very funny and tragic, DAI (eugh) is a brave attempt to humanize the headlines.
