Description Written in the heat of the latest Israel-Lebanon conflict, Stephen Sewell's play is an impassioned examination of peace and vengeance. As the play cuts between suburban Australia and the muezzin calls of the Middle East, it unearths simple humour and hope from impossibly complex situations. It is a determined search for a way out of the mire of attack and counter- attack.
