WRESTLING JERUSALEM, a new play written and performed by Aaron Davidman and directed by Michael John Garcés, comes to 59E59 Theaters (59 E 59th St, New York, NY 10022) following critically-acclaimed engagements in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Houston, and Washington D.C.

Set in America, Israel and Palestine, WRESTLING JERUSALEM follows one man's journey to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Aaron Davidman's solo performance is a personal story that grapples with the complexities of identity, history and social justice. Giving voice to 17 different characters - men and women, Jews and Muslims, soldiers and farmers, intellectuals and ordinary citizens - the play sheds light on one of the most entrenched conflicts of our time.

WRESTLING JERUSALEM is a play that seeks to build bridges of understanding about the complex challenges of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Each 90-minute performance is followed by a unique post-show conversation. These conversations give audiences an opportunity to reflect, as a community, on the issues the play addresses. The facilitated conversation lasts about 30 minutes.

The production and creative team for WRESTLING JERUSALEM includes scenic designer Nephelie Andonyadis, lighting designer Allen Willner, sound designer Bruno Louchouarn, choreographer Stacey Printz, and technical director Wolfgang Wachalovsky.

Tickets for WRESTLING JERUSALEM are now on sale for $35 (59E59 Member $24.50) and can be purchased online at 59E59.org, by phone at (212) 279-4200, or via the 59E59 Theaters Box Office (59 E 59th St, New York, NY 10022).
