Via Dolorosa by David Hare, featuring Jonathan Epstein

by David Hare

Aug 11, 2017
8:30PM - 10:30PM

"Hare’s unique talents and seeming remoteness from the issues at hand are precisely what make this journey of the heart and mind so theatrically invigorating." —Variety

"Via Dolorosa has such an astonishing abundance of stories, characters and ideas that, when you leave the theater, you feel as if you had lived through some kind of crazy, continuing epic." —The New York Times

Via Dolorosa is the story of British playwright David Hare’s 1997 visit to Israel and Gaza, told by a single actor in a virtuosic 90 minute dramatic whirlwind of people, places and events. As Hare, Jonathan Epstein turns himself into more than 30 different characters, each an impassioned participant in the Arab-Israeli struggle, as the play ranges through London, Tel Aviv, the Settlements, Gaza and Jerusalem itself, in search of some kind of hope in a world where it seems that everyone can say, and with justice: “This land is ours.”
