"It's all romanticism, nonsense, rottenness, art. I'd better go to my frogs…” Y. Bazarov
The novel by Ivan Turgenev written nearly 160 years ago caused a revolution in the 19th
century and remained modern in the 21st.
A classic is something that one rereads. And one rereads what is important here and now.
The great writers of the past increasingly come to the aid of those, who are looking for
solutions of today's problems, or - if you look even wider - for those, who seek the meaning
of life.
In the center of the plot is the conflict between the generation of the 'fathers' who protect
their foundations and moral values, and uncompromising 'sons' who reject outdated
authorities and truths.
"Fathers and Sons" is a play about us and about our time.

"A performance that makes you want to see it twice. Dramatic and thought-provoking stage adaptation. Recommended for every audience ... creates a
very original theatrical alchemy."


"A gorgeous production. The actors emit credibility and inspire amazement."


"A beautiful original work by Yehezkel Lazarov. Theater at its best."

Galley Zahal

"Very beautiful ... a sensitive and convincing human drama. A performance that should be watched... A special, intelligent and original stage direction."

Yedioth Ahronoth

"A stage language full of thought and complexity that invites the audience to devote themselves to the extraordinary."

Achbar Ha-Ir

"Dealing with really good literature Gesher Theatre continues to present a unique repertoire line, leaving behind the rest of the theatres... A fascinating and unique work."

"Innovative, daring, powerful and well engraved in memory, a unique artistic experience that you cannot see anywhere else."
