In the tension-filled days leading up to the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Prime Minister Golda Meir reflects on her tumultuous life as a Russian immigrant, American school teacher and political leader faced with the possibility of launching a nuclear attack on Israel's enemies. This stirring play received accolades on Broadway, and this production delivers  the same level of excitement and drama.
