About the play:
It is inspired by the real stories of a group of fighters who during the height of the second Intifada in 2002 took refuge in the Church of the Nativity, as the occupation army closed in with helicopters, tanks and snipers. Along with the fighters were some 100 priests, nuns and civilians. The siege lasted for 39 days, paralysing the center of Bethlehem and keeping tens of thousands under curfew.
