“The Wall”: A Look at the Barriers That Separate Us and Those That Bring Us Together

Everywhere we turn these days, it seems “the wall” is staring back at us. Its power is magical–it protects and alienates; keeps people in and out; and can–as we have all seen–even bring mighty governments to a standstill. Israel, too, has its share of walls. There’s the West Bank Barrier, of course; the Wailing Wall; and basically everything in between.

In their newest live show, cast members of Israel Story, Israel’s leading podcast, interact with different walls and have surprisingly poetic tales to tell about their encounters.

With their usual mix of unusually splendid storytelling, marvelous live music, and stunning visuals, the Israel Story team will present an evening that will redefine your thoughts about the ubiquitous “W word.”


Additional show on the east side on Tuesday, May 21st.
