“On the Grill” takes the audience on an emotional roller coaster. It is a superb script which gets a superb performance. This eye-opening delving into Israel, its joys, fears and projections into the future of the Jewish homeland, is an evening of theatre not to be missed. It can only be hoped that the show will be presented in other venues, including a New York production. This is theater at its finest!
This translation by Michael Ezrachi is less successful in exploring some of the trenchant issues it brings up, including the intergenerational conflicts among this family and the particular devastation of post-traumatic stress disorder.
