when love is caught in the crossfire of a divided world…

“Blood and Water” is an original one woman show, written and performed by Rachel Brill, based on Rachel’s real life experience as a Jewish woman who fell in love with a Palestinian man. The show takes the audience on a journey through the delicate terrain of a couple in love yet on opposite sides of a conflict larger than themselves. Forced to confront their lifelong beliefs, families, and societal expectations; they must discover if blood is thicker than water, or if love truly is a force strong enough to conquer all.
