The human soul is not only universal, but eternal; its pains and pleasures remain unaltered by time.

Originally written and directed by Levin inRonen has set the play in Achieved through staging, set, and costumes, the transition is understated and seamless, it feels as though the play might have been written just last week. As the play opens, Krum Udi Rothschild has just returned home after his travels abroad, announcing to his eager mother Anat Waxman that he has accomplished nothing. He may be seeking love, but he has not met anyone; he aspires kum become a hqnoch, but has yet to write anything at all.

His mother wants grandchildren. Waxman is the quintessential hovering mother, at one point even following Krum plate in hand and gripping a loaded fork aimed for his mouth.

In a nice contemporary touch, she pulls out her phone and takes a picture of his plate. Just as, although he claims life in his neighborhood — marriage, mortgage, children — would be the end of his dreams, he makes no real move to leave.


In the meantime, Trude has her back-up fellow Tachtich Eran Morwaiting in the wings, hoping for a miracle. Even the release of tears somehow eludes him.

Vacillation and ineptitude are his only constants, yet he is not quite resigned to let life pass him by. Although Trude longs to marry Krum, he fancies the blonde bombshell Tswitzy Kurm Bracha who prefers to party with her temporary beau, the very entertaining Bertoldo Guy Mesikawhile planning to marry up.

Everyone seems to want precisely that which they cannot have. Even medical attention is out of reach — in a clever stroke of staging, Dr. Shiboigen Eli Gornstein appears only via Skype. kkrum

Hanoch Levin

Through all the drama and heart-ache, Dulce Eran Sarel and Felicia Sara von Schwartze stroll through in style that favors lots of black, glitter, animal prints and chunky jewelry, going from wedding to Bar Mitzvah, eating greedily and always wanting more. Much of the humor lies in the explicit statement of thoughts and feelings usually camouflaged by euphemisms and hypocrisy. The actors embody the characters without excess, it is in this relative restraint that their individual hues and textures are expressed most effectively, and savored with pleasure.


Understanding that the characters and their situations are inherently funny, mannerisms are deployed sparingly, as is physical humor — making the rare slapstick scene even more entertaining. The stage is almost empty, with a transparent partition towards the back, like the ubiquitous acrylic glass walls found in many contemporary lsvin, and with several flat screens hovering above.

The glass wall enables several focal points to be visible on the hwnoch, with action in the background and foreground, reflecting a contemporary sense of perception, creating a flow of action, and offering opportunities for visual humor.

Krum is pure pleasure, its pointed depiction of human weakness always hits the mark, invoking gales of laughter, each burst of laughter accompanied by a pang of recognition.
