Performer 4: This isn't happening.
Goering: Danke schon, Fraulein.
Performer 2: Wake up! Wake up!
Dali: It's okay, kid, calm down. You're in the wrong play, that's all.
Performer 4: Tel Aviv, Israel, 2006?
Dali: No. This is Munich, Germany. 1937. Off you go now. Scram!
Performer 2: This way?
Dali: Not without a pass. You're Jewish. Can't you see that?
Performer 4: How do we get a pass?
Dali: You don't. There's a war coming.


While Adolf Hitler and Salvador Dali duel for the title of World's Best Moustache in 1930s Nazi Germany, modern day Israeli residents talk to interviewers about their disgust for facial hair. Through confrontations between Albert Einstein, Baruch Spinoza, Carl Schmitt, Dali, Hitler, and passersby on the streets of Tel Aviv, Lethe-wards OR The Play They Have All Come To See maps personal, banal notions of disgust as they translate into legitimized barbarities.

An adaptation of Ruth Kanner's Disgust and Carey Harrison's Midget in a Catsuit Reciting Spinoza, these plays-within-a-play see 4 actors play 22 characters across nationalities, ethnicities, and centuries.

Harking back to the river Lethe from the mythical Greek underworld, Lethe-wards explores humankind's habitual forgetting of history and persistent return to violence, and begs the question - how does the victim become the perpetrator?
