The Artery: It’s the North American premiere of Gilad Evron’s 2012 Israel Theater Prize winner centered on questions of absolute morality and personal freedom. The play introduces strange bedfellows whose shared mattress is a prison. One is the title character, an Israeli-Arab teacher arrested for illegally entering Gaza on a raft of bottles, ostensibly to bring the gift of Russian literature. The other is the Israeli-Jewish attorney who takes his case pro bono. Israeli Stage artistic director Guy Ben-Aharon helms a crackerjack cast made up of Jeremiah Kissel, Will Lyman, Karen MacDonald, Ken Cheeseman, and Daniel Berger-Jones. – The Artery
