Jehu is set in Israel and is one of its most fascinatingly complex tales, only growing more relevant over time. It tells the story of a sick, power-hungry leader who rules over an occupied territory. Cruelty, violence, and rage triumph over everything, and citizens find refuge only in madness. The show plays with illusions, creating a false reality in which ropes pull the actors here and there, and stunning red paint spills from jars, mimicking the spilled blood of civilians.
“Written by Gilad Evron in 1992, Jehu is one of the most enthralling dramas in Hebrew, and Ilan Ronen’s production is excellent, with a cast of fantastic actors led by King Jehu, played tremendously by Gil Frank.”
