IS­RAELI POLITICS ON STAGE

Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv, by Mon­treal-born Oren Safdie, pre­mieres at Théâtre St. James, 265 St. Jac­ques St. W., and runs un­til March 5. This In­finithe­atre pro­duc­tion deals with the Is­raeli-pales­tinian con­flict in a man­ner that is “part farce, part sus­pense­ful drama.” Tony Goldberg is an award-win­ning gay Cana­dian au­thor sym­pa­thetic to the Pales­tinian cause who has come to Is­rael to de­liver a scathing cri­tique of the Is­raeli gov­ern­ment be­fore a left-lean­ing au­di­ence. But things don’t go as smoothly as planned, and Goldberg gets en­snared in a Pales­tinian ter­ror­ist plot that shakes his smug views from the Di­as­pora, to say the least. Tick­ets, 514-987-1774 ext. 104.
