Via Dolorosa (1998) a monologue by English playwright, screenwriter and theatre and film director David Hare (born 1947), a piece of observational theatre that tries to make sense of the modern Middle East. From Palestine and the plight of refugees to the Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa, it is a mesmeric examination of societies forever on the brink of despair. Hare premiered the work in London in September 1998, in his solo acting debut, in collaboration with director Stephen Daldry and set designer Ian McNeil.
