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.

The Sparks Fly Upward

The Sparks Fly Upward is a musical drama that follows three German families in Berlin, two Jewish and one Christian, through the Holocaust. Between 1938 and the end of the war in 1945, the families struggle to outlast Hitler. At times the families turn to the Book of Job for diversion, reassurance and enlightenment. Job’s suffering, and the contest between good and evil represented in his story, are reflected in the lives of the characters, who boldly face the question of man’s obligation to man in times of moral and political crisis.
