On the day hundreds of thousands of Internet users expect the Third Intifada to Free Palestine to be launched in Israel, the Jewish Theater of New York will open SAIDA in New York. __
SAIDA__ is a Commedia dell’arte, Middle East style. Two men, veteran spies of opposing countries, show up unannounced at Haj Ibn Kabir’s abode in Tunisia. Each visitor is doing his best to make the other fall in love with the Haj’s daughter, Saida, and once they think they have succeeded each is doing his best to steal her from the other.
As the Middle East boils and rages, and as American foreign policy makers on both sides of the Isle zigzag every Monday and Thursday, The Jewish Theater of New York is extremely happy to offer a little advice to the perplexed. Welcome to Tunisia, land of hotel servants turned revolution makers, and be greeted by Saida, Tunisia’s most beautiful lady, whose choice of a lover will resonate for generations to come.
SAIDA__ was written in Tunisia by playwright and journalist Tuvia Tenenbom. Tuvia, who writes for major European papers, has been filing reports in recent years from varied Middle Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Qatar, Israel and PA.
