After 30 years at sea, veteran seaman, Aharon Avitan, returns to shore duties in time for the birth of his first grandchild. He looks forward to living a quiet life surrounded by family and friends. Appointed as Head of the Marine Department at the port of Ashdod in southern Israel, Aharon soon clashes with Azulay the long time union organiser with a firm grip on the port's operations. Against a background of looming privatisation, the clash soon develops into full blooded warfare as the workers take to the barricades to defend long held practices (often corrupt) from a man eager to reform the workplace. Set mainly in the docks the production mixes the drama of industrial warfare, a love story and a parable about the reality of economic rationalisation. The production was nominated for three Israeli Academy awards. (2016) Wednesday 6th September, 6.15pm for 7.00pm Opening Night: Includes entertainment and finger food and opening remarks by Brigadier General Gal Hirsch and the Honourable Matthew Guy MP, Leader of the Opposition.
