The political satire In the Tunnel, also by Mr. Chen, inspired by the Best Foreign Language Oscar-winning film No Man’s Land by Danis Tanovic. In the play two Israeli soldiers and two Palestinians soldiers are trapped in a tunnel dug by Hamas between Gaza and Israel. Enemies snared in a mousetrap, they try to find their way out. Should they kill or save each other? Meanwhile, above ground, a political and media circus is taking place attempting to capture and cover the event. The cast of nine is directed by award- winner Irad Rubinstein. In the Tunnel sets out to ask if there a light at the end of the tunnel and a hope for this conflict to end. In this theatre, the audience gets the chance to vote and determine the end of the play. Can theater reflects and examine reality in real time? Whether the play will end in an optimistic or more pessimistic note, in this show, only the audience can tell.
