About the show
The story of the residents of a small village in Israel in the 1940s, their loves, worries and pleasures as experienced by Yossi, a naive adolescent who never grows up. Yossi's day-to-day life and the lives of his relatives interest him more than grave national issues, until those invade his world and destroy it. The play unfolds with warmth, affection, humor and sadness in a corner of Israel where man, despite his destiny, comes out a winner.
Village runs for 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one interval.
