Ulysses on Bottles


Launching the 2017 Voices Festival marking 50 years of The Occupation, the Israeli playwright Gilad Evron’s poetic and poignant play recounts the fallout when an Israeli-Arab ex-teacher, nicknamed Ulysses, attempts to sail into Gaza on a raft made of plastic bottles, bearing with him a cargo of Dostoyevksy’s Crime and Punishment. Paired with a successful Israeli-Jewish attorney who takes his case pro bono, Ulysses on Bottles is a tale of two worlds colliding over Gaza, in which the profound implication of privilege and access in one of the hotbeds of the world intersect with surprising sympathy and humor.
