Review


This play was great for all the wrong reasons. While one can sympathize with what the writer/director had in mind and what the cast attempted to perform, this play is backwards. It’s a brutally visible case of putting the message before the story. It’s about a Jewish couple moving into a house that belonged to an oppressed and forcibly evicted Palestinian family—and God help me the husband is hilarious. His character was written for the best Curb Your Enthusiasm season that never aired. First, he doesn’t understand why his wife is visibly and vocally incensed at the plight of the people who now live in tents visible from the house window. Also, she doesn’t want to have sex on the evicted people’s bed. Then he eats their jam from the jar with a spoon and doesn’t get why she’s angry with him. This is a show for those who want to see the incredibly complex geopolitical and sectarian realities that underlie Israel and the occupied territories treated with all the moral subtlety of David and Goliath. Souls set an incredibly far goal and fell at nearly every attempt to reach it. Reviewed by Lucas Provencher.
