RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

Golda is a dramatization of the extraordinary life of Golda Meir, a remarkable woman and former prime minister of Israel. The play focuses on Mrs. Meir during the ten days of the 1973 Yom Kippur War which began disastrously for Israel and ended with partial, inconclusive victory. The war scenes alternate with the key moments in her life: her pogrom threatened childhood in Russia, growing up in Milwaukee, her marriage to the gentle, introverted Morris Meyerson, their emigration to Palestine, the heightened hope presented by the dream of a Jewish homeland and the struggle to make the dream a reality and her loving but wrenching conflict with her husband (and her own guilt) over the political career that interfered with her life as wife and mother.
