The Home For Lost Boys appears on the surface to be a tense drama about orphan boys fighting over who has proper ownership of the house they think is theirs. Three boys, under the guidance of their caretaker, are preparing to assume ownership of the house they grew up in when the eldest becomes a legal adult. However, a mysterious boy shows up just days before that happens and claims that the house belonged to his family from year's past and has come to reclaim it. As the action unfolds, and evidence of their families' histories is presented, we soon realize that this clever theatre piece is actually an allegory for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. To further the metaphor, the adults are played by teenagers and vice versa.
