Double Panther

By Yoav Shutan Goshen

Beit Lessin Theater
Tel Aviv


Double Panther is an original Israeli play inspired by the real-life story of the Israeli Black Panthers protest movement.
Set in 1970’s Jerusalem, the play tells the story of the recently released convict and criminal, Yaakov Elbaz. When caught by a police lieutenant during another crime, Elbaz is now faced with an ultimatum; either go back to prison or penetrate a young protest movement called the Israeli Black panthers and report back to the police with information about their activities.
Joining the group just to avoid jail, Elbaz quickly realizes that for the first time in his life, he is actually fighting for something he believes in and gaining the respect of people around him, especially his ex-wife and son.
Torn between his devotion to the cause and his deal with the lieutenant, Elbaz is caught in a game that will eventually destroy his life.
