Federico Garcia Lorca (1898 - 1936) wrote "Audience" in 1930 when he was visiting in Cuba. It's one of two surrealist plays he wrote - he and Salvador Dali were close friends - but it wasn't produced until 1987, fifty-one years after he'd been murdered by Franco's soldiers. Now artistic director Yuval Zamir is directing it at his Simta Theater in Old Jaffa. It's a great pageant of a piece in which 12 actors play some 60 parts including horses, Shakespearean characters and various objects. The play is built around the character of a director accused by four horses, representing repressed desires, of having sold his artistic soul to fame and fortune. Audience opens at the Simta on December 20.
