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.

The play's Our Town structure is strongest in the beginning. It soon turns into a story about the Holocaust and the proposed Nazi march in Skokie, Illinois in 1977. While an interreligious teenage romance is also centraal, the 1977 conflicts re intermarriage are not developed.
The acting, as is generally the case at Theater J, is excellent. However, the play needs major rewrites to deal with chronological confusion and historical inaccuracies.
Still, the evening was quite entertaining, tghe reason for the four star review.
