We have a huge week coming up, what with it being Pride month and all. Even a cynic like me can’t help but be excited by all the rainbow flags flying all over town. There will, of course, be some Pride parties in this week’s party post (coming out later this week), but whether or not you’re celebrating Pride day/week/month/year, there’s loads of stuff to do in Tel Aviv this week. Check out the highlights below. More, as always, in our app.

From the blurb: “A wild physical comedy that tells the story of a theatre company during a run of a show. The director plays the part of God, and is married to Eve, Adam is a spoiled diva and the snake a beginning actor. When the backstage technician carries out his cunning plot to takeover one of the prime roles on stage – their life is thrown into utter chaos, but the show must go on.
Behind the scenes you will experience the suspense of a quick costume
change, maneuvering complex backdrops, the anxiety of actors, power
struggles, life-size cardboard animals, excitement and despair, extension
cables, secret desires and private lives, who are turned in the duration of
one show to an exquisite farce of “reality-show” culture.”
