Last night, I saw Motti Lerner’s play “The Admission” at the Jaffa Theatre (in Hebrew). The play revolves around the supposed massacre of Palestinians in a seaside village in 1948. (In the play, it’s called Tantur, a transparent reference to Tantura.) Bottom line: a contrived plot based on a fictional event, but very well acted. Bonus: Teddy Katz was in attendance, and he offered a short rant after the show. It was his Haifa U. thesis 20 years ago that “exposed” the Tantura “massacre.” Israeli veterans sued him for defamation and won; the university later revoked his thesis. Kudos: play program includes a 30-page anthology of writings about Tantura (Morris, Gelber, Pappe).
