The Breakdown of Theodicy as a Cross-Genre Event in Post-Shoah Tragedy, Using the Framework of Ron Elisha's TWO
This thesis exists in two parts, practical and written. The practical element was the direction of Ron Elisha’s play TWO. The second part is this written thesis, which focuses on developing a critical framework for this play and others of its kind. Included in the written thesis will be an establishment of this critical framework, a structural analysis of Two, and an application of the aforementioned critical framework to the text of Two. Finally, a study of the application of this critical theory from a directorial standpoint will be undertaken, with special attention paid to the use of dramatic action as an expression of the changing nature of religious belief.
