The Wall: A play by Jessica Litwak

9/28/2019 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM PT

The Wall

Play by Jessica Litwak

The Wall: This short play uses poetry, humor, puppetry and diverse characters to give voice to an impossible problem that can only be survived through increased humanity, paradoxical curiosity, and artful expression. Having crossed through the checkpoints many times, Litwak has a unique perspective on the Occupation and this human rights crisis.


As an educator and theatre artist who has worked in Jenin, Hebron, Ramallah, Beit Jala and Nablus in the West Bank and also in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Jessica Litwak has deep relationships in Palestine and in Israel. As a Jewish woman who works in the Arab world, she grapples with the deeply felt paradoxes of heart and heritage, east and west, men and women, justice and peace. The Wall has been performed in New York at La MaMa, at The International Human Rights Arts Festival, and will be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer.
