more than "Rachel Corrie"

Miri Ben-Shalom of Tel Aviv's "All About Jewish Theatre" journal looks at many of the Israel-themed plays seen in New York lately, mostly in readings at the recent Public Theatre festival. She thinks they're too skewed against Israel and for Palestine. But at least she talks at length with many of the playwrights, including Israelis Josha Sobol ("iWitness") and Motti Lerner ("The Murder of Isaac").

An informative international survey of dramatists on this issue.
