Play Explores Israel-Palestine Conflict
The travelers include an American Zionist who supports the policies of the Sharon government, an Orthodox Israeli settler, an American Jew who supports many of the tenets of Zionism while disagreeing with Israel's current approach, and an Israeli eclectic who favors the eventual creation of a single Israeli-Palestinian state. Because of a terrorist threat, the four fall under suspicion and are detained by Israeli airport security.
The five cast members are from various states and have diverse religious affiliations, but they share a commitment to work toward healing and mutual understanding among Arabs and Israelis as well as Americans concerned about this area of the Middle East. The performance is grounded in the perspective that by honestly engaging with points of contention, respectful dialogue can general new perspectives, new insights and new possibilities.
Following the performance, the audience is invited to gather in small discussion groups facilitated by the cast members. The full program is two hours long.
