“When a child wants to fly,

She is willing to jump from the roof of a building in Tel-Aviv

For that one moment, that split second of flying.

When a child wants to fly,

Many years after her wings had been tied close to her arms

She feels starved.

When a child wants to fly,

And she is told “go on, fly, now, to wherever you want”

She immediately becomes

A pillar of salt

A balloon exploding

Darkness.”

(from Postal Delivery to God)  

 

The adolescence story of girls in the Jewish-religious world searching for God.

 

The play “Postal Delivery to God” is a unique creation dealing with the adolescence processes in the national-religious society and the individual’s search for God, from a feminine perspective.

The story of two religious girls searching for God during three periods of their lives: as girls, adolescents and women.

Each period is characterized differently and raises various conflicts regarding the dialogue with the Creator, definition of identity and experiences belonging to each one of the girls.

 

The play is based on the personal stories of the play’s creators and performers, who all come from the Jewish-religious world.

Each one of them is in a different place regarding her relation with God and the observance of His commandments – religious and non-religious.
