In 2012 – 2013, playwright Danny Bryck conducted hundreds of interviews in Israel/Palestine, capturing the staggering diversity of voices of the people living between the river and the sea: from a young soldier in Tel Aviv to a young mother from Gaza, a Holocaust survivor to a Sudanese refugee, an American settler to a German convert to Judaism turned anti-occupation activist. Using their real words, The River and the Sea challenges our notions of birthright and belonging, history and nation, and the ways we define ourselves and each other. When everyone tells a different story, how do we tell the truth?
There will be a staged reading at New Repertory Theatre on March 30, 2015 as part of the Next Rep Festival. More info at dannybryck.com/river
