Six plays, six playwrights, six takes on Israel...

Masada by Arthur Milner
"Jews are modern people. On every subject we are rational, we are children of enlightenment. Except. About Jews."

The Murder of Isaac by Motti Lerner
"You are sovereign. You are the one who thinks, feels, decides and kills."

The Trials of John Demjanjuk: A Holocaust Cabaret by Jonathan Garfinkel
"I’m going to do my best to save your skin. But I need your help. I need you to tell me what you really did during the war."

Hand in Hand by Simon Block
"…at least I was still in Israel – and no matter how hopeless and bloody the country gets, simply being in Israel still counts for something back here among the folks who aren't."

Shooting Magda (The Palestinian Girl) by Joshua Sobol
"I’m treating you with respect. I only beat you up because I thought you were a Jew. One of those bleeding-heart leftists from the Theatre Department."

Reading Hebron by Jason Sherman
"There are no answers, Nathan. Only positions. What’s yours?"
