DAVID HARE in VIA DOLOROSA AT DUCHESS 15TH JULY

Via Dolorosa written and performed by David Hare will open at the Duchess Theatre 18th July 02, following previews from 15th July 02, for a limited six-week season to 25th Aug 02.

Directed by Stephen Daldry, the play is produced by Bill Kenwright and Thelma Holt.

David Hare made his acting debut in the Royal Court production of Via Dolorosa in 1998, and subsequently on Broadway in 1999.

Via Dolorosa had its origins in 1997, when the then 50 year-old David Hare paid a three-week visit to Israel, celebrating its own 50th Birthday at the time. Deeply touched by the experience, he began the memoir that became Via Dolorosa. In the course of playing some 33 people on stage - from a family of Jewish settlers in the West Bank to a Palestinian politician in Gaza - Hare meditates on the region's age-old conflicts and questions his own values as searchingly as the powerful beliefs, passions, prejudices and suspicions of those he met.
