The Wondrous Journey to the Land of Words
By Noam Shmuel | Based on Ruvik Rosenthal’s Book
Tel Aviv, Israel
The plot of the Play, which is intended for children Five and over, is about Doron and Shira (the names of Rosenthal's grandchildren ), a brother and sister who love to talk and argue about words, and who are caught up in adventure to the land of words. On their journey, they pass through different stations, such as the bed of roots or the castle of high words, and up close experience the inner workings of the language.
The play offers wonderful plot twists, and each chapter provides linguistic information, even if the child is unaware of it. Then there is the philosophy of language, which considers what language actually is, and how it lives and renews itself constantly.
