A Very Narrow Bridge
by Itai Erdal, Anita Rochon and Maiko Yamamoto
7pm Mar 5-13 (no show Fri Mar 11)
Enter into the JCC’s Dayson Boardroom for this special up-close premiere that reveals the complexity of living between cultures. In this humorous and moving chamber-sized play, award-winning performer and playwright, Israeli-Canadian Itai Erdal, re-lives a trial in order to obtain a gett – a divorce document in Jewish religious law – where everything he knows is at stake.
With a breathtaking score created and performed by Talia Erdal, A Very Narrow Bridge takes a personal look at leaving love, and Israel behind.
Directed by Maiko Yamamoto and Anita Rochon and joining Erdal onstage are local favourites Patti Allan, Anton Lipovetsky and Tom Pickett.
