The zionists

by Zohar Tirosh-Polk

Ån epic drama about three generations of one Zionist family and their search for home. Sonya writes a goodbye letter, Morris makes one fatal decision, Sheila clings and doesn’t let go, and the band rocks on. From Poland to Palestine, to Israel and later the U.S., THE ZIONISTS asks: Where is home? What is home? At what price? Who is Herzl? And, most importantly, what’s in the box?

Zohar is our “in-house’ Israeli-American voice, and this is her biggest - and most personal - play to date. It’s huge and epic and I can’t wait to see where it goes.
— Artistic Director David Winitsky
