Haaretz

"A play well-worth seeing. What occurs in it does not often happen in theatre. Though it’s a light, funny play, it manages to draw the viewer into a comprehensive emotional experience. The text, direction and wonderful acting by the entire cast – are simply a pleasure. This play contains a quality of love and creative freedom that gently flows into the audience. It’s wonderful to see the theatre giving an opportunity to talented young writers in this original play".

Modiin News

"Clever writing full of humour and small stabs at politicians creates an enjoyable, pleasurable experience. This very relevant play contains unforgettable onstage moments of empathy alongside hysterically funny comic sections. The team of actors play several roles, and each does a precise, convincing job. A huge shout-out to the Cameri for quickly stepping up and creating, in no time at all, this enjoyable treat. Must see"!

HaBama

"There are moments and comments and some aspects of realist melodrama, but in particular, there are innumerable opportunities for liberating laughter. Four actors go crazy between the bath and the toilet, between the bed and the door and the closet. Netta Garti succeeds in creating a moment of emotion within the laugh-fest around, Nadav Assulin is convincing, Nadav Nates is gorgeous and amusing. Kinneret Limoni steals the show.

This is undoubtedly one of the sweet spots of the end of summer which will cool the hot, humid days still to come. Go, you'll laugh – about Covid too, but especially about people. In other words, at us".

Mako

"There is an experience here which manages to be greater than the sum of its parts and to touch upon the Holy Grail of the theatre arts – singularity. Director Irad Rubinstein has composed a rhythmic, textured, breathing mosaic about a period that will not soon be forgotten, including the clever use of its soundtrack. This is a unique situation in which the audience, each with their own masks, look the fresh, unworked trauma in the face and are asked to live it onstage. Laughter, tears, it doesn’t matter – in the auditorium, it all becomes part of the piece".

Yediot Achronot

"Irad Rubinstein has succeeded in organically stringing tales together, beautifully staging them dynamically on the closed, revolving stage designed by Eran Atzmon. He draws exposed, intimate, precise, and convincing performances from the four fabulous actors. The end result is a confection of the funniest, refreshing, and wild plays I've seen recently. Beyond the laughter it inspires, it is human and touching. 5 stars"!
