Synopsis
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 ex-teacher, 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. Winner of Israel Theater Prize’s Best Original Play in 2012.

Critic Reviews
Well-acted, sharply produced… It’s hard to see how the production could be better.
