Piese de Joshua Sobol

A&B
Adam
Adam concerns Itzhak Wittenberg, the leader of the FPO in the Vilna ghetto. The play involves the moral dilemma of Wittenberg (Adam): whether to turn himself in to the Nazis, who have demanded his arrest and threatened to harm ghetto inhabitants in retaliation, or to maintain his freedom so that he may help the armed revolt.
Alma
Povestea vieții Almei Mahler-Werfel, o faimoasă femeie fatală care a fost muza multor artiști. Ea a fost soția compozitorului Gustav Mahler, dar și a arhitectului Walter Gropius și a poetului Franz Werfel. De asemenea a avut aventuri amoroase cu pictorii Oskar Kokoschka, Gustav Klimt și alți câțiva, adunând în viața sa unele din cele mai creative spirite ale secolului al XX-lea.
Bloody Nathan
The play narrates the kidnapping of a ”Nathan the Wise”actor by liberation fighters and is meant to be ―as bloody as reality. In the play, the Nathan actor taken hostage by terrorists manages to get hold of a gun by lulling his kidnappers to sleep through narrating the ring parable. This act of taking hold of the gun parallels the revelation of the authentic ring, whose ―magic power allows its bearer to kill man and god. Itmarks Sobol‘s complete inversion of Lessing‘s ring symbolism, which brought delight to god and man.
Consequences
Eight playwrights play consequences in the 21stC as a last gasp for Foco Novo, killed by the government and the Arts Council
Crocodiles
The Arabs, Latif and Munir, the Romanian Nadel and the Israeli, Rashti, who is of Middle Eastern origin spend their lives lolling on the seashore and wading in the sea. Donna, an American television producer looking for an interesting human environment to produce a reality TV show, promises each one of them a villa in Beverly Hills if they are chosen as the most interesting team among reality TV shows all over the world. Donna does not give up on her attempts to produce the desired drama and arranges an encounter between the four and a strange young couple wandering around the beach. The girl, 22, is a former international model who dropped out of the profession and became a homeless person, and her boyfriend is a soldier on leave who cannot return to his base because his girlfriend wants to commit suicide. He is looking for some good people to keep an eye on her. The result of the meeting between the two groups is contrary to Donna's expectations - the four take pity on the couple and take them in.
Eye to eye
Ghetto
About the experiences of the Jews of the Vilna Ghetto during Nazi occupation in World War II. The play focuses on the Jewish theatre in the ghetto, incorporating live music and including as characters historical figures such as Jacob Gens, the chief of the Jewish Police and later Head of the ghetto. It is part of a triptych of plays about the resistance movement, which also includes Adam and Underground.
Homeless Ben Gurion
Homeward Angel
Honey
IWitness
In 1943, Franz Jaegerstatter, an Austrian citizen, was guillotined for refbsing to serve in the German army. Joshua Sobol's solemnly virtuous play, first seen in Israel during an outbreak of conscientious objection at the height of the intifada, details his time in prison.Maxie Szalwinska, Metro(London)
Jerusalem Syndrome, The
K'Far (The VIllage)
The play probed the difficulties of trying to assimilate personal lives into paradigms created by historical developments. Looking at history as a way of examining contemporary Israeli society, the author is particularly interested in the intersection between the personal - even the emotional - and the political.
La Torana
Love for a penny
A play about a Yiddish-speaking company of actors, who are all homeless immigrants, struggling for survival against all odds, and in spite of the landlord's attempt to repossess the stable where they live and perform, and to throw them out to the street. A miracle happens thanks to the unexpected immigrant, Boris Shailockov. It is a musical satire about Israeli society as it is seen quite comically from the point of view of new immigrants, and as it sound even more laughably in Yiddish.
Ma Ni Ma Mama
Nice Toni
The play follows one German Jewish family across three generations and is based on "Hans Deutschland," an autobiography by 52-year-old German journalist Peter Finkelgruen. "Nice Tony" is the sarcastic nickname given to a Nazi SS guard by inmates at the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Nice Tony allegedly killed more than 300 inmates, including Finkelgruen's grandfather, Martin. The journalist character, Peter Finkelgruen (a riveting turn by Yehuda Almagor), is close to despair after he and his wife have provided prosecutors with extensive incriminating evidence against the still-living Nice Tony, to no avail.
Palestinian Girl
The plot of the play takes place over 24 hours in a studio where a television film "Magda" is being filmed in a financially-strapped production. The play weaves together two stories, a drama within a drama. One story is that of filming the story of Magda, a Palestinian woman. The script, based on Magda's autobiography is written by Samira, who is also a Palestinian, along with Benesch the director.
Real Time
Ring twice
Schneider & Schuster
Povestea a doi actori evrei ce decid să înființeze, la Lodz, în Polonia, un teatru care își dorește să atingă, prin intermediul spectacolelor, toate problemele de natură socială, umană și artistică ale timpului lor, neștiind că acest plan îi va conduce ușor către capcana lagărelor de concentrare. Cei doi evrei își trăiesc o bună parte din viață închiși, urmând ca apoi să fie deportați în Siberia iar după Perestroika-Glasnost, se trezesc în sălbatica lume capitalistă de astăzi.
Soul Of a Jew (Weininger's Night)
This is the story of Otto Weininger, a Jewish-Viennese, anti-feminist and antisemitic philosopher who changed his religion. Otto Weininger wrote a book "Sex and Personality," which made waves throughout Europe and which later on was used as propaganda material. The play, set in 1903, is an inner journey into the mind of the 23 year-old Otto, who has just now shot himself in the heart in a musty, dark room in a disintegrating building.
The Days to Come
Based on monologues he collected in an old age home in Haifa.
The Father
The Joker
The play opens during the last days of the October War in a bunker on the Golan Heights. The background is formed by the constant quacking of wireless apparatus and an occasional artillery shell exploding in the distance.
The last worker
The Masked Ball
The plot of Neshef Massekhot revolves around a gigantic, pervasive national traffic jam that locks all of Israeli society in place. The play's characters, named after the cars they have abandoned on the road, meet onstage to confront, first, the situation, second, each other, subsequently, themselves, and, finally, the Jewish condition.
The Night of the Twentieth
The night of October 20th, 1920. A group of young people. The kind of youth the like of which the country had not seen, products of the Shomer HaZa'ir movement throughout the Austro-Hungarian Empire, who had emigrated to Palestine a few months ago, is spending its last night in a temporary camo on a mountain in the Lower Galilee. The hour is three A.M., the young people, who had spent the first two watches of the night dancing and singing, have lain down to rest on their packs, and now they are waiting for the trucks that wll come at dawn and take them to their permanent settlement site. The next morning will bring new dangers with it. For the first time they are liable to come into conflict with the local Arabs, to kill or be killed.
Underground
The final play in Sobol's triptych ”Ghetto”, which is relatively unknown.
Village
A witness account of the Holocaust reaches the community in the person of a Russian refugee who arrives shortly after the war and relates the story of her family's liquidation. The woman's news brings the village to a standstill, but the transfixing moment is fleeting. Her testimony is completed and digested by the village in a few dry-eyed minutes. The Israeli playwright's recollections of his boyhood in a tiny orange-growing community in what was then Palestine, are filtered through the limited mind of a boy who doesn't fully grasp what is happening around him. Because the men and women of Village live in the mind of an ageless naif whom Sobol refers to as a Candide-figure, they are flattened to a single dimension. Their love affairs, quarrels and marital difficulties - often observed through binoculars by the narrator and central character, Yossi -- have little emotional weight.
Wars of the Jews
Play about the Second Temple period.
Wedding night
