Save 30% on tickets to Ulysses on Bottles at Mosaic Theater Company
Launching the 2017 Voices Festival marking 50 years of The Occupation, the Israeli playwright Gilad Evron’s poetic and poignant play recounts the fallout when an Israeli-Arab exteacher, nicknamed Ulysses, attempts to sail into Gaza on a raft made of plastic bottles, bearing with him a cargo of Dostoyevksy’s Crime and
Punishment. Paired with a successful Israeli-Jewish attorney who takes his case pro bono, Ulysses on Bottles is a tale of two worlds colliding over Gaza, in which the profound implication of privilege and access in one of the hotbeds of the world intersect with surprising sympathy and humor. This captivating story is “an allegory on the definition of freedom—what it means, what it entails and what it demands” (The Jerusalem Post). Winner of Israel Theater Prize’s Best Original Play in 2012.
