The Rubber Merchants
By Hanoch Levin
Funny for the majority of the time, hilarious often'
'The songs...are a delight. Catchy, boppy, and performed by the strong vocal talent of Kershaw and Emms, they are accompanied by the fabulous lighting design of Nat Green. My only quibble is that there aren’t more of them.' Theatre Weekly 4****
Big and bawdy performances drive a musical revival of a 1970s satire' -The Stage
In a tragifarce that resonates as much today as it did when it was written fifty years ago, three friends weigh up a life unlived versus risk taking.
Yohanan, Bella and Shmuel have average-sized dreams. They want sex, money and love. But is playing it safe really the best way to go about turning them into a reality? This fast-paced tragifarce recalibrates a 1970s play by celebrated Israeli playwright Hanoch Levin for a 2020s audience. Created by Gamayun Theatre, the comedy is devised by an international creative ensemble fully invested in cross-cultural dialogue and the sharing of different perspectives.
