had its origins in 1997, when the then 50 year-old David Hare paid a three-week visit to Israel, celebrating its own 50th Birthday at the time. Deeply touched by the experience, he began the memoir that became Via Dolorosa
. In the course of playing some 33 people on stage - from a family of Jewish settlers in the West Bank to a Palestinian politician in Gaza - Hare meditates on the region's age-old conflicts and questions his own values as searchingly as the powerful beliefs, passions, prejudices and suspicions of those he met.
