The director and playwright explains to Aleks Sierz the politics and psychology behind her new play, Honeytrap (New Diorama), which tells the story of a Swedish-born mother who decides to work for Mossad, helping to avenge the killing of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games.

The play explores the cycle of revenge. As the Chinese proverb says, ‘If you want revenge, you’d better dig two graves. Your own and the other person’s.’
