    Title: VIA DOLOROSA AND WHEN SHALL WE LIVE?

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    'My whole life, it's been assumed, Western civilisation is an old bitch gone in the teeth. And so people say, go to Israel. Because in Israel at least people are fighting. In Israel, they're fighting for something they believe in.' Via Dolorosa

    In 1997, after many invitations, the 50-year-old British playwright resolved finally to visit the 50-year-old State of Israel. The resulting play, written to be performed by the author himself, offers a meditation on an extraordinary trip to both Israel and the Palestinian territory, which leaves Hare questioning his own values as searchingly as the powerful beliefs of those he met.

    Accompanying Via Dolorosa is the 1996 lecture When Shall We Live?, which also addresses questions of art and faith. Originally given in Westminster Abbey as the Eric Symes Memorial Lecture, it attracted record correspondence when an abridged version was published in the Daily Telegraph.

With its examination of the themes of sexuality, responsibility, betrayal and vengeance, the play is vintage Miller and a modern classic.

    'Financial chicanery and ethical conflict in early twentieth-century classic being revived at the National Theatre. Edward''s highly principled world is turned upside down when his father reveals that he has been illegally speculating with clients'' money.

    To make matters worse, he soon discovers his large, scandal-fearing family would perpetuate the crime rather than risk public dishonour. ''Of course it''s pleasant and comfortable to keep within the law . . . then the law will look after you. Otherwise you have to look pretty sharp after yourself. You have to cultivate your own sense of right and wrong . . . deal with your own justice. But that makes a bigger man of you, let me tell you.''

    This magnificently observed, hugely enjoyable portrait of an upper-middle-class family was written by the father of 20th-century British theatre, Harley Granville Barker, ten years before the First World War finally sent old values flying. The play was first staged at the Court Theatre, London, in 1904. It opens at the Royal National Theatre on 18 April 2006.'
