‘This is Not a Subject for Comedy’ is described by Ivor Dembina as a ‘story with jokes’. The narrative uses humour to tell how a young Jewish man from Hendon, north London brought up to love Israel finds his support for the Jewish State challenged by his visit to the Occupied Territories. From London to the West Bank via Auschwitz and Jerusalem we see him decide to speak out against the Occupation despite hostility from within his own Jewish community.

Although the show is barely one-hour long it has been five years in the making. It was first performed in 2004 at a small theatre in Washington DC and is now widely traveled and includes showings in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem as well as in Ramallah and Bethlehem on the West Bank.
