The Night the War Came Home: A View from Within the Creation of the Play “At Night’s End”
Playwright Motti Lerner will discuss the writing of his play At Nightâ€™s End, which will be produced while Lerner is in residence at Knox College as this yearâ€™s Visiting Israeli Scholar. Lerner is an award-winning playwright and screenwriter, whose work for the stage has been produced in many countries including the USA, Germany, and South Africa. Most of his plays and films deal with political issues, including this, his latest play, which is set in Haifa at the peak of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, and explores the impact of that conflict on one Israeli family. This will be the third time Lerner has visited Knox.
