Teret Teret ("I shall tell a tale" in Amharic), consists of folktales related from the point of view of the refugee and stranger.
Three disconnected Ethiopian protagonists in western dress attempt to create contact with their new world through stories and songs. However, the more they tell, the more they feel trapped in their old identity.
The stories are Ethiopian folktales passed from father to son, full of simple wisdom, that served to resolve problems and conflicts. The new presentation of the stories provides a look at a rich Ethiopian culture, ancient and fascinating, generally hidden from outsiders.
*The play is based upon the book Teret Teret published by Miscal Publishers and Distributors, Ltd., founded by Yediot Aharonot and Hemed Books, and was edited by Dr. Tamar Alexander and Amalia Einat.
