Return To Haifa opens Saturday, January 15 at Theater J, 16th and Q Streets NW. The theater presents the show as part of its festival, “Voices From a Changing Middle East: Portraits of Home.”

Return from Haifa is produced by Cameri Theatre and is adapted by Boaz Gaon from the novella by Ghassan Kanafani, and directed by Sinai Peter. Return from Haifa is performed in Hebrew with English subtitles. A discussion follows each performance.

“A cross-cultural collaboration from the Israeli company that brought their kinetic Hamlet to DC in 2007, this heart-rending saga tells the story of Sa’id and Saffiyah, who return to the home they fled and learn the fate of the baby they left behind. Now a young soldier, Dov meets his birth parents while cleaving to the Holocaust survivors who raised him.”
