After the War

Motti Lerner

AFTER THE WAR

Provocative Israeli playwright Motti Lerner was the center of a contentious firestorm in Washington, DC in 2014 when his play The Admission caused a rift in the Jewish community. That story wrapped with the birth of Mosaic Theatre Company.

Motti transforms those tumultuous times into this searing investigation of the intersection art and politics. Set two days after the Second Lebanon War, an out-spoken left-wing pianist returns to his family home in Tel Aviv and confronts his mother, brother and son. 

Family, loyalty, patriotism, music, and ethics collide in Lerner's signature hard driving style.  

It was fascinating to get into tensions within Israeli society about the use of military force. I also liked the fact that it focused on the Second Lebanon War, a conflict that may not get a ton of attention.
