SIX

by ZOHAR TIROSH

A couple’s jet lagged, sun-drenched six day journey collides with family, politics and the Six-Day War.

 

Plays: PiecesLand/HolyHome/FrontThe ZionistsTheo’s DreamWaltzFog and Six have been produced and developed at The Lincoln Center Theater’s Director’s Lab, The New Group, Magic Theatre, New Repertory Theatre, The Cape Cod Theatre Project, The Jewish Plays Project, Rising Phoenix Rep, the Lark Play Development Center, The Brick, HERE, among many others. Her English translation of Hanoch Levin’s play, Those Who Walk in the Dark is published in Wanderers and Other Israeli Plays by Seagull Books.

Zohar received the 2014 honorable mention from Middle East America fellowship. In 2012, Zohar won the Jewish Plays Project’s new play competition for her play, Six. She’s a recipient of the Foundation for Jewish Culture’s Theatre grant and a commission from Highbrow Productions. She has a B.A. in Literature and Writing from Columbia University and a Playwriting MFA from Brooklyn College under Mac Wellman and Erin Courtney. Zohar lives in Brooklyn with her actor/producer husband, Andrew Polk and their two young children.

Zohar’s play contains this revelatory moment - three secular Israeli soldiers go up to the Mount in 1967. 2 come down as peace activists, 1 comes down as a religious settler, claiming divine intervention. This is a critical moment in the Middle East story, beautifully captured.
