Tscherly KaTscherly [צ’ארלי קאצ’רלי]


Tscherly KaTscherly is a character from a children’s rhyme. He is the ultimate “Tsabar” (“Sabra,” the Zionist ideal, Israeli born, through and through “New Jew”). The play is divided into short scenes and songs, a structure once popular in the Zionist’s settlements (similar to a review). The actors portray Tscherly KaTscherly, and parts of the scenes deal with Holocaust issues, such as a camp prisoner, a Nazi officer, etc. The stage is set with three rows of chairs designed to look like a trial scene.
