I believe Hanoch Levin is Israel's only great playwright. He's best known for stark, stylized black humor about petty people who are unaware of their own pettiness. It's a little as if Samuel Beckett were writing about Ralph Kramden. I've never seen a good translation of his work. The best representation on film is _Floch_. While not exactly sugar-coated, it's a mite more pleasant than many of his stage plays.
