  • FEMFEST Houston: Voices of Israel (December 7-8, 2019)

The inaugural effort in our new FEMFEST reading series, which will highlight women playwrights from around the globe and the issues that matter to them, Voices of Israel features three staged readings by Israeli women playwrights.

The first play, O GOD, by the late Anat Gov, shows us what would happen if God walked into a therapist’s office. Ella, a psychotherapist with problems of her own, has a turbulent relationship with God. Imagine her skepticism, anger and fear when God chooses her, insisting she help him solve his problems in just one hour. Directed by Elizabeth Keel.

The second play, MATERNITY by Hana Vazana Grinwald, is an experimental look at the thousands of babies who vanished from their families – new immigrants from Yemen who were living in refugee camps in Israel in the 1950’s. Maternity brings the silenced voices of the mothers of the abducted children to life, and finds a connection between them and the immigrant mothers of today. Directed by Leighza Walker.

The last play, VERSACE by playwright and journalist, Michal Aharoni, tells a story of love among criminals in the witness protection program. This energetic comedy will finish the series. Directed by Jon Harvey.

Talkbacks with the cast, Artistic Director of Mildred’s Umbrella, and representatives from the Consulate General of Israel, Office of Cultural Affairs will take place after each performance.
