During the 20th anniversary of the Six Day War, the Israeli magazine Koteret Rashit (Headline) commissioned author David Grossman to spend seven weeks in the West Bank. The stories that he gathered in his travels to refugee camps, courts, Jewish settlements, cities, and villages were published in his best-selling book, The Yellow Wind.

This new stage version—adapted and directed by the acclaimed Israeli artist Illan Ronen—combines powerful testimonial stories from the book, still relevant over 30 years after Grossman collected them, an interview with the writer himself, and an excerpt from his 2018 Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day speech. It paints a vivid, true, and often shocking portrait of life under occupation for West Bank residents during this critical time period in history.

A co-production of Jaffa Theatre and Tzavta Theatre, this play premiered in July 2019 as part of Jaffa Fest, an international theater festival, and has been seen across the globe. It was presented as part of the 2020 ISRADRAMA ExposureFest, sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture, and the Hanoch Levin Institute of Israeli Drama.
