Fans of interrogation scenes in Law & Order and other cop dramas will appreciate this play where the stakes are even higher than a murder in Central Park West. Based on the true story of the failed bombing attempt of an Israeli airliner in 1986, Lucile Lichtblau's play The English Bride has only three characters: an Israeli agent, an Englishwoman and her Arab lover.
