Award-winning actress Gita Munte is directing an adapted version of New World Order at the Jerusalem Khan, marking her debut as a professional director. The play opens on March 20.



Taken from three short plays by the late Harold Pinter (1930-2008), New World Order is set in a vulgarly ostentatious nightclub where the Beautiful People dance and drink, shutting out the war raging outside. They respond violently to anything that will threaten their “new world order” (one of urbane viciousness), whether it comes from within or is dragged in from the outside.

The three plays, One for the Road, Celebration, and the title play present aspects of Pinter’s increasing concern about the legal abuse of power. A playwright who from the very beginning addressed social and personal conflict in his work, Pinter became more overtly political in his last years. Celebration (2000) was his last stage play.

Munte immigrated to Israel in 1970 from her native Romania, where she was already a noted actress. She won her first Israel Theater Prize for Best Actress – the title role in Anna Galactia – in 1996. Most recently she won the ITP for Best Supporting Actress as KachaKacha in Make My Heart Flutter.
