Squatters Theatre and Isramerica Present SABRA 5/27-6/6
Squatters Theatre and Isramerica are proud to present the world premiere of SABRA by Julia Rosenfeld, directed by Samantha Tella. Performances are at the Manhattan Theater Source, 177 MacDougal Street from May 27th through June 6th.
Gilah is a Jewish American college dropout who travels to Israel, the country meant to be her homeland, to find where she belongs…or maybe just to see the girl she can’t stop thinking about. Desire, identity and falafel collide in this titillating new play about finding your voice when you can't speak the language.
Playwright Julia Rosenfeld is the editor of the Theatre Development Fund’s teen theatre magazine PxP and online Plog. She is currently working as the Story Editor on Fusion Picture’s film Rise Above. Director Samantha Tella has worked with MCC Theater, The Flea, New Georges and NYMF. She works behind-the-scenes on the HBO documentary mini-series Master Class.

Hadari has worked with Small Pond Entertainment on shows such as Rooms, Fictive Kinship, Man in the Newspaper Hat, co-produced No Exit with Elian Zach and was last seen on stage in the NY Fringe Festival summer hit Sex and the Holy Land.
