Four For Jericho (Menagerie Theatre Co)

By | Published on Sunday 28 August 2011

When Michael, an eager Christian desperate to film the Holy Land for his Sunday school group, is catapulted off the plane into the bustling Middle East, he has no idea what he has let himself in for. His good intentions fail him as he is forced to endure the enveloping Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Aided by just a few blocks of cement, the four-person cast fantastically envisage a bumpy taxi ride, busy marketplace and refugee camp, and the conflict is put into a realistic and touchingly human perspective through these entirely believable characters. ‘Four For Jericho’ is a whirlwind of laughter, religion and politics, and a brutal exposé of the destructive nature of people living side by side in hatred.

Pleasance Courtyard, 4 – 29 Aug (not 16), 2.45pm (3.45pm), £9.00 – £11.00, fpp263.
