The Fist examines the thorny question of whether pacifists are traitors. Three generations of an Israeli family are thrown into turmoil because the son, a highly decorated former army officer, is against the continued occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip and refuses to report to his reserve unit, under penalty of military trial and certain imprisonment. Directed by Michael Elliot Rutenberg.
At the Performance on Sunday, March 28th, THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY (TNC) in association with the Refusers Solidarity Network will host a special benefit evening.
