Description

The rise of Golda Meir from Russian schoolgirl to American school-teacher to a leader of international politics as the fourth Prime Minister of Israel is one of the most thrilling and amazing stories of the 20th Century. Much of the focus of this stage play written by William Gibson is on the period surrounding the 1973 Yom Kippur War when Israel was attacked by Egypt and Syria. A rare, multi-camera shoot from the play’s original run was recently unearthed and assembled into a riveting motion picture. In this film her life has been transformed into a cinematic event of overwhelming power and inspirational triumph. Over 500 performances both On and Off Broadway were sold out, making this not only the longest-running, one-woman show in Broadway history, but earning accolades far and wide.
