“The soldiers beat up this Arab. And he took a wire, that soldier. He was really screwed up. He wound up this wire around and around this guy’s hand…” 

Using direct testimony from the Israeli Group “Breaking the Silence” this play concerns a Palestinian whose hand was mutilated at a checkpoint. It uses theatre to imagine a dialogue about guilt and responsibility.

(8 minutes; 2 actors, any gender)
