Hebron, the West Bank. In one week, the Israeli Army will demolish a Palestinian woman’s house. Her son is a Hamas bomb maker. Her daughter is becoming defiant. Her lover was pronounced a traitor. Where does a sane woman go?  On the same street lives a religious Jewish woman, unmarried and pregnant. The Army will force her out of her home in a week, as well. Her family decides to fight back. But the father of her child rejects the plan. Will these two women join in the violence, or join together and save themselves? 

Inspired by true stories of Israelis and Palestinians, MARTYRS STREET is written by Misha Shulman, a former Commander in the Israeli Army, and directed by Ian Morgan, Associate Artistic Director of The New Group.  Winner of four national playwriting competitions from both Jews and Arabs, this play will change your understanding of the reality in Israel and Palestine.
