In the Shadow of the Martyr


In the Shadow of the Martyr is the result of a long and excessive research in the minds of those who execute suicide missions and the strains of the human mind. On stage, Waseem Kher is having a monologue and several conversations with imaginary characters on one of the nights working as a warden at a mental hospital. The same hospital he was supposed to work in as a doctor specialized in the human mind. However, his brother blew himself up in 1948 while riding a bus in Netanya city in the Occupied Lands of Palestine and that changed everything.
