About My Calamitous Affair With The Minister...

A world premiere by Ari Roth, directed by John Vreeke, featuring Anat Cogan, Ilasiea Gray, Lisa Hodsoll, Karl Kippola, and Hassan Nazari-Robati

A close-to-the-bone, comic and cutting-edge roman à clef about how we collaborate, and the cost of riding-the-third-rail while making mission-driven theater.

This theatrical chronicle of a cross-cultural crack-up begins with a brand new Executive Director and her former boss returning to the scene of a rehearsal room revolt that set the stage for an Artistic Director’s departure from the theater he launched with high purpose and blind spots. Restorative Justice is on the agenda but hard to find, as the company re-unites and a fictionalized, right-wing Israeli Cabinet Minister materializes uninvited to spar with Eilat and Samad, Israeli and Palestinian theater artists/activists, while their American hosts, Virginia and the unnamed AD, get caught in the middle, navigating treacherous terrain. They try to mend the unmendable, in a journey of personal loss and learning, reckoning and renewal, push-back, contrition, boycotts and cancel culture – on both sides – all hanging in precarious balance.
