The Runner

ZAKA is an Orthodox Jewish volunteer force in Israel. They collect the remains of Jews killed in accidents. This one-person play follows Jacob – a ZAKA volunteer – as he grapples with the political and moral fall out of saving a woman’s life.

Based on a real-life Z.A.K.A member, The Runner has been created in Israel in collaboration with Nephesh Theatre, Tel Aviv and is being presented with the support of Theatre Passe Muraille.
