A groundbreaking anthology of plays about the Israel-Palestine conflict penned by diaspora playwrights of Jewish and Palestinian decent. This volume of seven plays varies in genre between drama and comedy, in aesthetic between realism and surrealism, and in setting between the diasporas and Israel/Palestine, offering distinct perspectives that turn the political into the personal.
