What We Did to Weinstein

Front Cover
Oberon Books, Jun 12, 2012 - Drama - 88 pages

‘NO! We can't change the subject! This is the subject! There is no other subject. Not for us.'

Sickened by the everyday arguments and compromises he saw around him in his native London, the idealistic Josh has moved to Israel and joined the army. There, however, he finds himself in a situation with a Palestinian terror suspect which seems to challenge his most strongly held beliefs.

Deftly cutting between different locations and time periods, Ryan Craig's play lets us see unexpected connections between disparate events, as well as bringing together people with apparently nothing in common. A wryly humorous, sometimes hilarious, look at a serious issue, What We Did to Weinstein moves between London life and the world of the intifada, creating a portrait of a society where idealism too easily becomes extremism and pragmatism hypocrisy.
