The Stage, Tel Aviv’s premiere English Performing Arts Organization, presents Luna, its first children’s play in English. The play, written by Ramon Esquivel, is the tale of the moon (Luna) and her good friend Soledad. Soledad is the daughter of migrant farm workers. Because they never stay in one place very long, her only friend is the moon, but Soledad dreams of more. With the advice and encouragement of Luna, Soledad finds that she’s just got to take a little risk, and is able to make not one, but two new friends! When this new development clashes with the way her family has organized their life following the work and harvests, only Luna can guess what will happen. Luna is a play about family, friendship and the ways in which our differences are what make us most like one another. Everyone can relate to that experience of being different, of feeling left out and finding a way in.
Director Abraham Benson-Goldberg, along with six actors, are excited to present this heartwarming play to the Tel Aviv community. The play was chosen as a finalist in The Stage’s “Run Your Own Project” Contest. The Stage’s and Abraham Benson-Goldberg’s vision is for LUNA to be a pioneer for high quality English language theatre for children in Israel.
