Magna Harta

An evening of songs and sketches by Yehoshua Sobol
Directed by Avi Malka
Herzelia Ensemble Theatre

August - September 2000

Magna Harta

Magna Harta, a paraphrase of the historical Magna Carta scripts (Harta in Hebrew slang: nonsense, garbage, low quality), is Yehoshua Sobol's satire about embarrassed people in embarrassing situations. People who seek stolen love, stolen fame and stolen cars. Sobol's interpretation of today's life in Israel is depicted in short and stressful encounters, as well as cynical songs: an evening of songs and sketches, created for the new Herzelia Ensemble Theater to celebrate the theatre's opening.

Selected music from the evening:
