They say acting and, for that matter, directing require a well-developed sense of timing. If that is the case, then Sinai Peter and the cast and technical team of Oved Shabbat (“Quieter Days”) and Salwa Nakara and the staff of the Al-Midan Theater in Haifa certainly chose an interesting juncture in regional political developments to work on their new play.

The work in question is the first Hebrew- language play to be hosted by the Al-Midan Theater which, for the past 20 years, has presented shows exclusively in Arabic. For now, the play will be performed on September 12 and 13 (both at 8:30 p.m.).
