NEWS: World Premiere of Julia Pascal’s 12:37 Announced

The production will run at the Finborough Theatre from the 29th November until the 21st September.

Pascal Theatre Company has confirmed that Julia Pascal’s 12:37 will have its World Premiere at the Finborough Theatre next month.

At 12.37pm on 22 July 1946, the King David Hotel in Jerusalem was bombed. 91 people were killed, 46 wounded.

The bombing was carried out by right wing Zionists, targeting the headquarters of the British in Palestine.

Two Irish Jewish brothers, Paul and Cecil Green, journey from their Dublin birthplace, to battling antisemitism on the streets of East London. Their Irish nationalism propels them towards Jewish nationalism as they struggle against British Imperialism to form a Jewish nation state.

As violence between British soldiers, and Jewish terrorists erupts, Paul and Cecil become involved in an act of terrorism that changes both their lives.

The production will be directed by Julia Pascal and casting has yet to be announced.

Julia Pascal trained as an actor before starting her career as a playwright and theatre director. She performed at the National Theatre, RSC, Nottingham Playhouse and Royal Court. Her adaptation of Dorothy Parker’s prose and poetry as a Platform Performance, which ran for two years, marked her as the first female director at the National Theatre. As a director, she has toured Harold Pinter’s The Caretaker for the British Council. For The Orange Tree she was Associate Director where her productions included the plays of Bertolt Brecht and Fay Weldon.
