One of Germany’s most prestigious festivals for introducing new writers, this year’s Stückemarket (Play Market), from April 29 to May 9 in Heidelberg, showcases Israel.

The Bet Lessin production of Savyon Librecht’s The Banality of Love opens the festival with a second performance the following day. Banality will also by given at Freiburg. Both are celebrated university towns. Banality follows the close to 50 year romance between philosopher Martin Heidegger, sympathetic to Nazi ideology, and Jewish thinker/author Hannah Arendt. Arendt studied at Heidelberg and at Freiburg, where Heidegger taught. All three performances are sold out.
There’ll be three additional shows, fruits of joint Beit Lessin/Heidelberg projects, featuring Israeli and German directors and actors. They are They Call Me Yekke, Tel Aviv: Cover Story and Real Estate.

The Cameri is sending Yiftach Klein to perform In the Middle of the Day, a drama based on the true story of a soldier taken prisoner by Egypt during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, while from the Jerusalem Khan comes The Little People’s City.
