Originally seen at New York's Culture Project in November 2006, the play subsequently transferred to the 47th Street Theatre and won the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Solo Show in New York. The production was also nominated for the Drama Desk Award in the same category. Dai (enough) was previously produced in the U.K. at the 2007 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Dai (enough) takes us into the world of a Tel Aviv café moments before a suicide bombing. According to press materials, the play goes behind the headlines and puts a human angle on this most emotionally charged of topics. In the play, Bahr brings 11 different characters to life that span the ideological and physical spectrum of Israeli society.

Bahr is a Bronx-raised writer, actor, director and radio performer who moved to Israel at the age of 12. Her first solo show, Planet America, also received an LA Weekly nomination for Outstanding Solo Show. She has appeared on such TV shows as "Friends," "The Drew Carey Show" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (playing the recurring role of Rachel Heinemann in the ski-lift and Korean Bookie episodes), and she also has a brief (two-line) appearance in the final series of "Star Trek Voyager."

The play is presented in London by Peter Wolff and Louisa Prodromou with Stars and Angels and The Shaw Theatre.
