This is first theater adaptation of the Israeli best-selling novel.
This non—traditional story takes place in Haifa right after the Yom Kippur War. The forth Arab—Israeli war occurred in 1973, when the Arab coalition launched a joint surprise attack on Israel on the holiest day in Judaism. Although Israel won the war, it suffered great losses — with 2838 dead and 8800 injured. Adam, our main character, is searching for the lost lover of his wife. After being enlisted in the army, he never returned, and no one has any news of him. The search for the Lover becomes a search for lost identity, for one´s place in the world and for a way out of solitude. A story of exceptional love that reaches beyond all rules and norms. A love that is as cruel and uncomfortable as the condition of Israeli post—war society itself. But a love that is worth living.
This play will be the theater debut of the famous film director Radim Špaček, among whose works include Young Men Discovering the World (1996), taking place during the War in Jugoslavia and the award—winning Walking Too Fast (2009).
This production is in Czech with English subtitles.
