In an Israeli desert town where every day feels the same, something different is suddenly in the air. Dina (Lenk), the local café owner, had long resigned her desires for romance to daydreaming about exotic films and music from her youth. When a band of Egyptian musicians shows up lost at her café, she and her fellow locals take them in for the night. Under the spell of the night sky, their lives intertwine in unexpected ways, and this once sleepy town begins to wake up.
The world premiere of The Band's Visit was presented by the Atlantic Theater Company in December, 2016
