The Wall. Photo: Larry StillmanDavid Hare is a British playwright and performer. His monologue, The Wall, was broadast on the ABC in Australia, but unfortunately, it is not available for streaming. Since he first visited Israel and the Palestinian territories to write Via Dolorosa, which the Royal Court presented over 200 times in the West End and on Broadway, David Hare has regularly been back to the region. Now he offers a searching 40-minute study of the Israel/Palestine separation barrier which will one day stretch 486 miles and be over four times as long as the Berlin Wall – and in places, twice as high (review).
A version of the monologue is available on the NYRB website. It is quite extraordinary, and try to read it aloud.
