The show is 2.5 hours long so take that into account when making reservations for dinner.

We ate at Trattoria La Siciliana, which is about 4 blocks away from the theater. The food is so great, served family style. Make a reservation for before or after the show.

Description

Blood Relative

consists of several pieces of original writing by ensemble members. The combined effect presents a group of vivid and surprising characters come to life: a religious Israeli soldier who’d been born in the U.S. and had emigrated to Israel; a Palestinian garage mechanic with a burning ambition to become an actor; an Egyptian photographer working in the occupied territories; a popular Israeli singer with a troubled personal life; an American-Jewish medical student caught in the crossfire.
