photoWhat happens when idealism becomes power? Who has a right to exist somewhere? These are questions raised by the new one-woman play "Golda's Balcony" about the late prime Minister of Israel Golda Meir. "Golda's Balcony" is mainly set during one of Meir's most troubling times as prime minister, with the events leading up to and during the Yom Kippur war of 1973. Interwoven around these days we learn about Meir's life, her family, her politics and the weight on her shoulders as she worked for her people's dream for an Jewish state.
