Pangs of the Messiah, is a harrowing yet humane depiction of an extended family of eight West Bank settlers who resist the dismantling of their settlement and an impending Peace Accord between the Israeli Government and the Palestinian Authority. Set in the future in the year 2012, Motti Lerner's play reveals the widely divergent responses within a family of religious Zionist pioneers as Rabbi Shmuel Berger (Michael Tolaydo, Blue/Orange Theater Alliance), an esteemed and charismatic leader of the settlement movement, is forced to reckon with the legacy of violence that his holy teachings have unwittingly fostered. By the celebrated author of The Murder of Isaac and featuring an Israeli creative team helmed by director Sinai Peter.
