The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: A Romantic Comedy
At Ars Nova's ANT FEST
Thursday, June 21, 8pm
511 West 54TH ST
http://arsnovanyc.com/antfest/shows/the-israeli-palestinian-conflict/

This show is a musical comedy that tracks the notorious mid-East conflict back to a botched one-night stand at the Geneva Convention. Totally embarrassing treaty-sex leads to international chaos but the question remains, did Palestine and Israel actually find LOVE?

Here's what people said about the show at the Edinburgh Fest before we got all super-intense on the development front:
* Chortle (UK) - Four Stars "I was completely exhilarated by the experience." *
"Witty and provocative material, with stingingly sharp, original lines, deftly written."
* Three Weeks (UK) - Four Stars "Politically sharp and impeccably performed"*
* The Independent (UK) "The crowd goes wild!" *
* The List (UK) Top Five Pick of the Fringe! *
