Tackling taboos and controversial topics with satire, the play revolves around three men -- a Palestinian Muslim, an Israeli Jew and a Lebanese Christian -- who meet in order to negotiate a deal over a piece of land in Palestine.Accompanied by music by Michel Elefteriades, the cast boats Antoine Balabane, (the Jew) Talal El Jurdi, (the Muslim) Pierre Chammassian (the Christian) and Solange Trak, playing a ditzy American office secretary who watches the whole story unfold from a nearby high-rise.The play begins with the secretary seducing a co-worker before the scene fades to black and the Jew emerges below, taking large clownlike strides as he follows a map to the correct land plot.While the story of the three men comes to an end, the larger questions the play asks are left open-ended.The secretary peers over the scene and informs the Boss, they've buried the same man in three different ways.
