Teru’ah – Jewish political drama script

How to sow the seeds of a Jewish genocide? It’s a tricky business of course and in Teru’ah it is a business that seems to have taken over the world… or in this case the world that matters. For the seeds of Jewish genocide require the world’s utmost attention. For the Jewish question is a question of everything; a question of Israel, a question for all time, a question of all people and a question of the state of our very own minds.

The real question that these people ask is this: What is a Jew? Not who. What. A simple word that takes the soul or humanity out of the equation. And as in life, this two act drama untangles this question and many others to leave us with the most important one:

What counts as genocide?

Teru’ah is a alternate history play script set in a post 9-11 world that examines the age old question of how genocide can come to pass. It also explores the fictional situation in which Israel is a power that the rest of the world is beginning to rebel against. An explosive script that deals with events leading up to a  new world war.

BY THE RIVERS OF BABYLON –  American  Drama Script

It’s a small community, really, between two rivers to be exact, in Kentucky State. It is not much, but it’s theirs … or rather it was. In ‘’By the Rivers of Babylon” the  community of this quaint albeit thriving town is facing eviction by land developers, or is it the government, or rather big business.  Does it even matter whom? In this two act American drama script, the relationship between ‘the land’ and its ownership is explored through the eyes of wives, sons and grandpa’s, as families turn their faces up to a darkened sky of what was hope. The citizens of Kentucky’s ‘Babylon’ are in essence facing the firmament of ‘coulda’, ‘woulda’, ‘shoulda’ three words so tightly wound in regret that their chances of moving on both physically and emotionally from the land are as wide as it is a small community really, between two rivers to be exact.

“If we ever owned the land we own it still, for we never sold it…” – Native American Chief Joseph-Nez Perce
