Golda's Balcony

Golda's Balcony

October 12 to October 30, 2011 | On the Alliance Stage
Part of the Alliance Series

The play follows the life of Golda Meir – from Russian immigrant to American schoolteacher to the epicenter of international politics as the fourth Prime Minister of Israel. Gibson's drama pits Meir against Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger with the threatened launch of nuclear weapons against her enemies, unless the U.S. comes to her country’s aid. In turn deeply funny and frighteningly prescient, Golda’s Balcony poses the altogether too contemporary question of What if the Middle East exploded?
