The Arab and The Jew

Toured 2007 – 2008

We have seen our fathers shouting and waving their arms in the air. 
We have watched from a distance and hidden from the news.

Allel Nedjari and Amit Lahav grew up on opposite sides of the Arab-Israeli divide. Here they celebrate their brotherhood and laugh and cry at their reflections. The Arab and The Jew is both a riot of sound, image and movement and an ambitious dance of reason and conciliation.


Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
“A bleakly funny, brutally painful comedy. Imagine Newsnight performed by the Marx Brothers and script-edited by Beckett.”

Donald Hutera, The Times
“Brilliantly vaudevillian two-hander with tragic underpinnings… dazzlingly unpredictable.”
