Motherblood Theater Experience

Click to Enlarge

Click for a larger view!Motherblood, a short play, is an encounter between two mothers, one who is Israeli, the other is Palestinian, both of whom have survived significant losses. They struggle with each other, sharing a wide range of feelings regarding their complex personal and political situations. This is a meeting that changes these two womens’ lives. It promises to move you as well.

“This amazing dramatic performance breaks through all the rhetoric on both sides of the Israel/Palestine struggle and leads us directly to the humanity and fundamental decency of most people on both sides. It’s a perfect opening to a serious conversation about what we can do to build a lasting peace with justice and security for both sides.
–Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor, Tikkun and author, Healing Israel/Palestine (North Atlantic Books, 2003)
