Jaffa Theatre

Jaffa Theatre

Jaffa Theatre is a socially involved theatre establishment whose plays often confront pressing issues and conflicts in Israel. The theatre is housed in a historic building by the sea in Old Jaffa. Inspired by both tradition and modernity, it is a stage for Arabic and Hebrew speaking artists who write, direct and perform. Productions, usually fringe productions, are in Hebrew and Arabic, in some cases with English subtitles. Performances take place both in Jaffa and countrywide, in major cities and peripheral centers, as well as abroad. Following each show, actors and directors hold a dialogue with the audience. Theatre festivals dedicated to children, women and the diversity of Middle East cultures are regularly held. A variety of other cultural projects, including workshops, educational programs, art exhibitions, music and literary evenings are also offered. The theatre shares its premises with the Arab Al Saraya Theatre company. The two companies work both independently and jointly.
