GOLDA’S BALCONY
By William Gibson
Golda’s Balcony follows the trajectory of the life of Golda Meir from Russian immigrant to American schoolteacher to a leader of international policies as the fourth Prime Minister of Israel. Tovah Feldshuh delivers a tour de force portrait of Meir in William Gibson’s (The Miracle Worker, Two for the Seesaw) award-winning drama. From the pogroms of Russia to the halls of the Knesset, Meir’s life – and the play – encapsulates the dramatic story of Israel in the 20th century.

THE WHIPPING MAN
By Matthew Lopez
Set in Virginia following the final days of the Civil War, a Jewish Confederate soldier returns to his childhood home, only to find it in ruins and occupied by his former slaves, who are preparing for a Seder. Though a new chapter of history is unfolding, dangerous secrets of the past threaten to destroy their family, their connected history, and their shared faith. The Whipping Man is a moving and provocative look at a pivotal time in American history.
