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.
