The Whore from Ohio

The Whore from Ohio

Israeli Stage presented the Hanoch Levin’s The Whore from Ohio within its 2013-14 Season at The Goethe Institut Boston (full house) on November 10th, 2013.

Hanoch Levin’s The Whore from Ohio is beautifully poetic and utterly devastating at the same time. Stripping away all dignity, Levin leaves us with the hard realities of love, sex, aging and death that are ever-present in this play about a beggar, his son, and his objet du désir.

The Arts Fuse: “The Whore from Ohio is a provocative reminder that the same creature that is born to eat, drink, copulate, rot, and die is also a creature that dreams, tells stories, contemplates its own existence, and attends the theater…” more at ArtsFuse.org
