Opening Announcement

SCOOP is an original Israeli play that explores how far people will go for their loved ones and personal interests when faced with tough moral dilemmas. It uses the backdrop of the Israeli Jewish-Arab conflict as a catalyst to the plot but doesn't go into politics. The second act reveals the aftermath of the choices made by the characters, and their tragic irreversible consequences. Read more...

YAIR PACKER

YAIR PACKER (Writer) writes children's stories as well as screenplays for adult audiences. Three of his one-act plays were staged at English-speaking theaters in Munich in 2015, and in Berlin in 2012. Packer’s play Love Her to Death, written in Hebrew, was translated into French and English, read in Paris and London in 2013. His children's short story “Free Time Machine” (published in Hebrew in Israel by Sifriat Maariv) is now being adapted into a play. Ten of his children's books are on the Israeli market in Hebrew. Several of his short plays are regularly performed in the USA and in Germany.

Packer’s full length play in Hebrew Scoop had its premier in December 2014 in Israel. It was on stage in Hebrew in Miami in May 2017. A translation in English is available and was read at the Rose Playhouse in London in November 2017. It will be produced by The Israeli Artists Project in New York in 2018 in both Hebrew and in English.
