Inspired by Arthur Miller's classic family drama All My Sons, The Admission finds wartime secrets threatening to explode within a close-knit clan in Haifa. Injured during his military service in Lebanon, an Israeli professor's romance with a Palestinian woman leads him to suspect that his father may be trying to cover up past tragedies with a new battle-site construction project. Written by the acclaimed Motti Lerner (Pangs of the Messiah), this workshop production, staged by a team of Israeli, Arab, Jewish-American and Arab-American artists, explores the difficulties of building peace in the future while the ghosts of history still haunt the present.

This is a play that explores a number of serious themes deftly and with humor. What have women achieved, after 40+ years since the "women's lib" movement started, in terms of their acceptance and comfort with their bodies? What have they been able to solidify in their ability to express their gender preferences and do those work in more constructive ways than the old ones? What are the utility of psychiatric label and what do they do to those who are diagnosed? What constitutes pornography?
And able cast, excellent pacing and fluid staging make it come alive.

September 7, 3:00pm: Join GLOE and Theater J for a casual post-show salon to discuss Body Awareness over wine and light refreshments. All are invited to come and share their thoughts in this moderated discussion on everything from blended families, to the “f” word (feminism) in pop culture, to whether it matters who is doing the looking in images of women’s bodies.
