Synopsis

O Jerusalem

O Jerusalem $15.99

A R Gurney

Published by Broadway Play Publishing

"It's true that O Jerusalem, an exhilarating new play by A R Gurneyseems especially timely because of its subject matter

After all, it touches on many of the issues now preoccupying people around the world - the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East, American foreign policy, terrorism

...Gurney's play manages to reach beyond its topical premise to pack a big, heartbreaking wallop. This is not a story about anything so cold as politics. Above all, it's about a man struggling to balance his ideals and personal relationships against a high-pressure career....

Gurney works with a wider geographic and cultural lensthan usual. His previous plays have dealt mostly with domestic turmoil among white, upper-class Protestants; here, althoughthe conflicts are still personal, they have global repercussions. And one of the main characters is decidedly nonwhite - Amira, a Palestinian activist

Each scene pulses with Gurney's crackling dialogue...it has a scattershot energy and an ear for emotionally charged situations that make it totally engrossing. When a play has those assets, it doesn't need current events to be relevant" - Justin Glanville, The Associated Press
