The Hearing

Arts & Culture

A high school student complains about their teacher expressing leftist views in the classroom, and then the teacher is called in for a hearing. This is the true story of Adam Verete who was publicly threatened and humiliated after opening a dialogue about the morality of an army in a public high school in Israel. Directed by Guy Ben-Aharon.

The protocol of The Hearing was first conceived as a performance by Renana Raz in Israel. This translation, by Natalie Fainstein and Guy Ben-Aharon, was commissioned and produced by Boston's Israeli Stage, sharing the diversity and vitality of Israeli culture through theatre and dialogue.

“Israeli Stage recognizes the value of discussing the thought-provoking issues” ~BroadwayWorld.com

“An optic through which to examine our own nation’s problems…a provocative mirror on the vicissitudes of our own democracy.” ~ArtsFuse.org

“A powerful play…about issues of academic freedom.” ~The Financial Times

“The show is, at times, laugh out loud funny! The statements and arguments made are so outlandish, that you can’t help but laugh.” ~The Brookline Tab
