17/3/18 was a first World Premiere of I❤MAMMA by Hadar Galron
A comedy with dramatic streaks about the challenges of modern Motherhood.
Originally written for and with (via improv.) third year students at Beit-Zvi schol of dramatic arts, I made a new version of the play – (changed the outline story) especially for ABC Municipal Theatre of Prague.
Directed by : Petr Svojtka – Artistic Director at ABC theatre Asisstant writer : Nufar Hurvitz
The Secrets – a play by Hadar Galron ( inspired by the screenplay she wrote with director Avi Nesher , was staged only recently in Israel (October ’17) , produced by the Beit-Lessin theatre in Tel-Aviv. Before the Israeli production it was commissioned by the Mlada Boleslav theatre in the Czech Republic . Galron’s earlier play , Mikveh, was on stage at the MB theatre for 2 years, and before the final show they made sure they had a contract for her next play . Only this time Galron was invited to personally direct the play .
Galron says: “Directing in a foreign language is a new challenge but I never say ‘no’ to adventures like this -especially as it’s in the Czech Republic that I love so much”
The Play “Mikveh” by Hadar Galron -will be premiered this coming April (Opening night 19/4/18 ) at the Harold Green Jewish Theater in Toronto. This will be the 11th internaional production of Galron’s first play, that was originally staged in 2005, produced by “Beit- Lessin Theatre” in Tel-Aviv. It was nominated for 6 Theatre Awards and won two, including “Play of the Year”. The longest run of “Mikveh” is, surprisingly, not in a Jewish Theater but in the National Theater of the Czech Republic – ‘Narodni Divadlo’- there it has been on stage since 2007 until today ! (This is the 11th, and probably final, season)
