With The Nouveau Criminals, the successful Israeli author Edna Mazia offers you the opportunity of a five star encounter, with characters which shall attract you to the saraband of events which you shall not escape unless you let laughter envelop you and lead you towards relaxation with no way back…

You shall cry with laughter at the challenges faced by the „nouveau criminals”… The humour and wisdom of an honest family of our days shall persuade you that it is worthwhile confronting fate even if one becomes its toy, even if the whole world has gone mad and ... even if „everything is but ...a great brothel”!!!

Edna Mazia (born on July 24th 1949, Tel Aviv, Israel) Drama author, writer, screenwriter and theatre director. She graduated from the MA studies of philosophy and theatre at the Tel Aviv University, where she later taught creative writing courses. At the Kameri theatre of Tel Aviv, she directed the plays of her best friend,  Anat Gov: Best Friends, Lysistrata 2000, Oh God, House Husband, Warm Family.

Her rich activity in the theatre field was preceded by some film scripts written for Israeli director Amos Gutman. With the play „Mischakim Bechatzer Ha-achorit” (Games in the Backyard, 1993), a docudrama inspired by a group rape case which has shaken the country, from the kibbutz Shomrat – 1993, followed by „Sipur Mishpahti (A Family Story, play in two acts, Or Am Publishing – 1997), and by „Hamordim” (The Rebels), play in two acts, Or Am Publishing – 1999, inspired by the political activity of her parents, Edna Mazia conquered her fame as a playwright well anchored in reality and she earned major awards and distinctions.
