The Hearing – Temple Israel

Spiral with vortex effect. Twisted futuristic effects.

CONCEIVED BY Renana Raz :: DIRECTOR Guy Ben-Aharon :: FEATURING Lonnie Farmer*, Maureen Keiller*, Melinda Lopez*, Nael Nacer* 

A high school student complains about their teacher expressing leftist views in the classroom, and the teacher is called in for a hearing with a representative of Education Ministry, the Principal and a secretary. This is the true story of Adam Verete who – after opening a dialogue about the morality of an army in a public high school in Israel – was not only forced to resign, but was publicly threatened and humiliated.

“The show is, at times, laugh out loud funny! The statements and arguments made are so outlandish, that you can’t help but laugh.” ~The Brookline Tab
