REQUIEM

Requiem was based on three novels by Anton Chekhov - In the Ravin, Misery and Rothschild's Fiddle. The story is about people who died of various reasons - the wife of 52 years of the old carpenter who sells coffins, a baby who has just born of a young maid-servant, the only son of the middle-aged troika driver. Though their hearts ache, they must search for the courage to carry on living, and to decipher the meaning of 'living' through 'death.'

About the Playwright 
Hanoch Levin (1943-1999)Hanoch Levin was born in Tel Aviv on December 18, 1943 and died of cancer on August 18, 1999. Wrote plays, sketches, songs, stories and poetry, and also directed most of his own plays. During his work as a playwright and stage director, he developed a unique dramatic and theatrical language, created by combining poetic written text and images designed with the actors and set designers, costume and lighting, composer and choreographer. His plays are characterized by his ability to combine the work of different artists and have always been a celebration of words and visual images, based on a great love for the theater and all who take part in the performance.
