Based on the letters of Yoni Netanyahu and the personal accounts of the men he led and the woman he loved, To Pay the Price weaves a complex portrait of an extraordinary man struggling to live an ordinary life. Reliving one of the greatest military rescue missions of all time - the raid to free hostages of a hijacked airliner from Entebbe - the play illuminates the toll to a nation of a never-ending war. It is the inspiring story of a genuine hero who grapples with the very notion of what it means to be a hero.
