The Burning Season [העונה הבוערת]


A retelling of the story of Job, with Job representing the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust. 20 years after the events told in the Book of Job, after Job got back double what he has lost, everything seems to be just fine. But underneath the surface there are dangerous currents that threaten Job’s family, estate and life in the Land of Oz. The play takes place in modern surroundings, making it a metaphor for the Holocaust—a foreign family living in a hostile country, surrounded by suspicion and hatred.
