The Isreali version of Rent?

A couple of Isreal Mothers are getting together and are about to premiere at the Acco festival of Alternative Israeli Theater, Chatuch Dak Dak is a poke at the position of women in contemporary Israeli society. Up on stage the other two are reciting bat mitzva speeches in rhymes, pronouncing each other Kosher, performing press ups, cutting ritual cloths, changing dresses on stage without revealing an inch of flesh, and in the pi ce de r sistance, dancing Spice Girl style to hassidic contemporary pop.
