CRYSTAL FIELD DIRECTORS PRESENTS

LAND OF FIRE

A PLAY ABOUT FORGIVENESS

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED DRAMA BASED ON A TRUE STORY IN U.S. PREMIERE

Theater for the New City, in association with New Yiddish Rep, presents the US premiere of "Land of Fire," the Argentinian playwright Mario Diament's riveting, based-on-real-events drama about the reconciliation of an Israeli woman with the terrorist who attacked her some 23 years earlier.

In 1978, an El Al passenger jet was commandeered in London by two PLO-linked terrorists. 23 years after the attack, one of the Israeli stewardesses, Yael Alon, decides to write the attacker, Hassan el Fawzi, and visit him in the London prison where he is confined. Driven to find out what led this man to do what he did, Yael discovers how flawed and craven our assumptions are about the complexity of ethnic hatreds. As her character tells the attacker in the play, "I think if we keep talking, we will understand each other one day. But if we keep killing each other, there won't be anyone left to listen."

"Land of Fire," which is performed in English, features Dagmar Stansova, as Yael; Mihran Shlougian as Hassan; Scott Zimmerman; Naci Baybura, Marilyn Lucchi, and David Mandelbaum.

Directed by the internationally acclaimed director Moshe Yassur, "Land of Fire" had its world premiere in Stockholm in 2012. It is now in its third sell-out season in Buenos Aires, where it opened in 2013, and where it earned many awards, including Argentina's top playwriting prize, the ACE. It opens in Madrid in April of 2016. The translation from Spanish is by Simone Zarmati Diament
