Checking with Chekhov Christopher Durang happily admits to borrowing from iconic Russian playwright Anton Chekhov. That is clear from the American play - wright’s comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike , which will start a run at the Haifa Theater on October 9.
This co-production of the Haifa Theater and Cameri Theater tells the tale of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together.
The play is set in a cherry orchard – referencing one of Chekhov’s most recognizable themes – and like the Russian work, Durang’s play also features the impending loss of the siblings’ ancestral home.
The Cameri-Haifa Theater version, directed by Moshe Naor, includes some energized younger characters, such as a prophetic housekeeper, Spike the young male lover, and an ambitious young actress.
Meanwhile, the eponymous siblings are at a different stage of life, but learn an important lesson about themselves.
The cast includes Tiki Dayan, Rami Baruch and Gal Amitai.

Different angles MoBY – Museums of Bat Yam – is hosting the new “Horizon - tal Photography” exhibition.
The show, which will run until January 10, offers a comprehensive look at four decades of work by photographer, teacher and philosopher Aïm Düelle Lüski.
The exhibition is based around 12 cameras that Düelle Lüski designed and built starting in the late 1970s. The designs were inspired by tra - ditional film cameras, which Düelle Lüski deconstructed in an effort reconsider the basic tenets of the art form and ex - amine the meanings of concepts such as photographer, landscape, perspective and the subject of a photograph.
“Photography in Dark Times” is the result of a three- decade-long discourse be - tween Düelle Lüski and the show’s curator, Dr. Ariella Azulay, and offers members of the public an opportunity to get a close look at a piece of photographic equipment that Düelle Lüski designed for the event and that takes 32 shots in various directions.
A workshop taking place during the exhibition run will examine Düelle Lüski’s work and consider photography as an experimental art form.
