Set in America, Israel, and Palestine, Wrestling Jerusalem follows one man's journey to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Davidman's solo show is a personal story that grapples with the complexities of identity, history, and social justice, giving voice to 17 different characters.

Following each performance, a facilitated conversation about the Israel-Palestinian conflict will take place.
