Masked, a play by Ilan Hatsor, translated by Michael Taub and directed by Ami Dayan, began previews at The DR2 Theatre (103 E. 15th Street) on July 20th with the official opening night set for August 2, 2007.
"An explosive play about three Palestinian brothers, Masked tackles the cultural divide at the heart of the Middle East conflict. Masked depicts the tragedy of one family torn between obligations, kinship, principles and survival. It is the first play by an Israeli playwright about the Intifada (Palestianian uprising)," state press notes. Ami Dayan / Maya Productions, Inc., Ronald Guttman / Highbrow Entertainment, Inc., and Seth A. Goldstein / The Splinter Group present Masked. Masked won first place in Israel's prestigious Akko Festival for writer Ilan Hatsor (then a first year theater student). Since then, Masked has been performed continuously across Israel and has been mounted in over 100 productions worldwide.
Masked is directed by Ami Dayan (The Man Himself, A Tale of a Tiger, The End). The cast of Masked is: Sanjit DeSilva, Daoud Heidami, and Arian Moayed.
