"Bahr’s dramatic intentions are obvious: She sets out to personalize the individual loss within the collective cataclysm, and she succeeds, shatteringly. As each character chatters away cheerfully, we know he or she is doomed. And although we brace ourselves for the inevitable blast, the cumulative explosions take us to a peak of dread and tension that is almost unbearable.

Bahr is an engaging performer who brings humor and humanity to her various personae. More important, “dai” is a compellingly distilled, superbly reasoned piece that states the Israeli cause with rationalism and restraint."

A Critical Moment

Bahr has done plenty of TV and standup but this is theatre, raw, deep, conflicted and in the end, astonishing, and it is no surprise that the show was a hit at Edinburgh, off-Broadway and has won the Lucille Lortel Award for Solo Show here, as well as gaining nominations for Drama Desk and UK Stage Awards. Along with the Golden Globe-winning animated feature Waltzing with Bashir, directed by Ari Folman, it would seem Bahr is among the Israeli artists who, while having no simple solution, cannot bear the never-ending cycle that eradicates lives and, upon closer examination, life stories.
