United Players presents

FACTS

by Arthur Milner

directed by Adam Henderson

Nov 7 – 30 at Jericho Arts Centre

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 an 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.

As a bonus feature, United Players is proud to present (on every Friday of the run) Arthur Milner’s companion piece Masada — in a reading by Facts director Adam Henderson. We are delighted that playwright Arthur Milner will be in Vancouver Nov 11 – Nov 18 to attend some of the performances.
