Three Posters for Hanoch Levin’s Yaakobi & Leidental, 1972, 1980

Three posters, two in Hebrew and one in English for productions of Hanoch Levin's classic play, Yaakobi & Leidental, directed by Levin and starring Zaharira Harifai, Yosef Carmon and Albert Cohen.
The first poster, designed by Cyla Menusy, features a large illustration of the female protagonist, with the two male characters heads underneath hers. The play is reffered to as "Yaakobi & Leidental (working title)", a co-production of the Cameri and Tzavta Theatres. This seems to be the earliest of the three posters.50x33 cm.
The two other posters, one in English and one in Hebrew, are based on the same design - a black and white photo of a scene from the play, with the title and credits on the top (on the right in the Hebrew, and on the left in the English poster). The words "working title" are omitted from the play's name, and Tzavta Theatre isn't mentioned. 48x33 cm.
The English poster is for one show at the [1980] Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it received the First Fringe Award. Apparently the play was staged again in 1980 with the same cast especially for the performance at the Festival. Unknown designer. 78x41 cm.
This is Levin's third play, and the first he directed.
Good to Very Good condition. The first poster has darkening of the paper and some staining, the third has small holes and damage to margins.
