We are delighted to say thatplaywright Arthur Milner will be in Vancouver between Nov. 11-18 and will be attending performances during that time.

This gripping play by Canadian playwright Arthur Milner is an intense psychological drama, a meticulous police procedural, a history lesson, and a debate encompassing key aspects of the Israel-Palestine conundrum.

Facts revolves around a joint Israeli/Palestinian police investigation over a killing in the West Bank in Palestine. A Christian-American archaeologist has been murdered, and the evidence points to a young Israeli settler with radical Zionist leanings. Facts is a chilling and taut political-crime thriller and an exciting piece of drama and offers a rare theatrical opportunity for both an Israeli and a Palestinian protagonist to wade through the greater political dilemma within the microcosm of a murder investigation.


Masada a deep and humorous look at "The Miracle of Zionism". It offers historical context to Israel and is intended to inspire and inform our conversation.

Masada will run after a 15 minute intermission after Facts, for about 35 minutes.

One of the greatest examples of artistic moral courage I've witnessed... leads its audience onto a very slippery slope and leaves the viewer to grope for his or her own answers. - Ottawa Sun
