‘Postal Delivery to God’ Written & Directed by Ruthie Osterman and Amit Zarka

Postal Delivery

Synopsis

Postal Delivery to God is based on the personal stories of the play’s creators and performers, who come from the Jewish-religious world.  The play tells the story of two religious girls searching for God and is composed of three parts which represent three different periods of their lives:  girlhood, adolescence and womanhood. Each part is characterized in a different manner and presents various conflicts regarding the dialogue with the Creator, the definition of identity in general and feminine identity in particular.  Each one of them is in a different place regarding their relationship with God. The emotional and physical struggle which they had gone through in the two previous parts concludes in the final picture, which represents the tears and the fractures beside the attempt to reach harmony.
