Tykocin Bat-Yam [טיקוצ’ין בת ים]

Two plays showcased together: In Tykocin, a Warsaw newspaper editor investigates a woman who is about to receive the “Righteous Among the Nations" medal. He suspects there is a dark secret behind the story. His research stirs up old demons in the village, and the villagers are forced to confront their past as well as their investigator—a representative of the younger generation. Bat-Yam is the story of three generations of one Israeli family, going on a trip to Poland to learn about their past. They arrive at Tykocin, and enter into a bitter dispute among themselves, and with the villagers, regarding family assets stolen by the Polish.
