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.

Winner of three 2019 Dora Awards: Outstanding Production, Outstanding New Play, and Outstanding Direction (Independent Theatre Division)
