Winner of Israel Theater Prize’s Best Original Play in 2012, Gilad Evron’s poetic and poignant examination of lives in conflict receives its North American premiere from Boston’s own Israeli Stage, featuring the acting talents of local favorites Jeremiah Kissel, Will Lyman and Karen MacDonald. With surprising humor and powerful insight, Ulysses on Bottles tells the story of two unlikely companions who meet in prison: an Israeli-Arab literature teacher nicknamed Ulysses and a successful Israeli-Jewish attorney who takes on his case pro bono. Combined, the perspectives of the two men explore the different reactions to Gaza: the collisions of the personal and the political, morality and ambition. Evron wrestles with people living in separate realities where a life of privilege is pitted against a life of deprivation, and the story of Ulysses raises profound questions about absolute morality and personal freedom.
