The Law of Return

a play by Martin Blank

Arts & Culture

A crafty spy with allegiance beyond the United States? A misguided analyst? Or just a man with access to classified information seeking to profit?

Martin Blank's original spy thriller play draws inspiration from events surrounding the polarizing 1985 Johnathan Jay Pollard espionage case. Notorious intelligence analyst Pollard abused his level of access and threatened US national security by passing information to Israel...or did he? The Law of Return played to sold-out audiences in New York City.

This will be a staged reading to be followed with a talkback session with the writer.

Evenhanded...both the United States and Israel...come off as basically decent. Pollard supporters and detractors can find fuel for their arguments in Mr. Blank's narrative. - The New York Times

As satisfying as any spy movie and twice as smart. - TheaterMania 

A rare treat...a night of theater not soon forgotten. - Frederick Gazette
