Once Upon a Time There Was a King

Nissim Aloni was a king of the Hebrew theater. The magical realm he created onstage brimmed with imagination and poetry, giving voice and vision to the loftiest dreams. But in a world dominated by a mundane, populist democracy and controlled by functionaries, Aloni found he was a king in exile, without a kingdom, without an audience, without critics, and without theater managers to share his whimsical dreams.
