341-351 Finchley Road, NW3 6ET London, United Kingdom
A high school student complains about their teacher expressing leftist views in the classroom, and then the teacher is called in for a hearing. This is the true story of Adam Verete who was publicly threatened and humiliated after opening a dialogue about the morality of an army in a public high school in Israel. Directed by Guy Ben-Aharon.
The protocol of The Hearing was first conceived as a performance by Renana Raz in Israel. This translation, by Natalie Fainstein and Guy Ben-Aharon, was commissioned and produced by Boston's Israeli Stage, sharing the diversity and vitality of Israeli culture through theatre and dialogue.
Michael Sfard, one of Israel’s foremost human rights lawyers who represented Adam Ver...ete in the judicial hearing, will join the director in a panel discussion after the show.
“Israeli Stage recognizes the value of discussing the thought-provoking issues”
“An optic through which to examine our own nation’s problems…a provocative mirror on the vicissitudes of our own democracy.”
“A powerful play…about issues of academic freedom.” ~The Financial Times
“The show is, at times, laugh out loud funny! The statements and arguments made are so outlandish, that you can’t help but laugh.” ~The Brookline Tab
Presented in partnership with Yachad and New Israel Fund
