Set against the backdrop of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, during the time of the First Intifada, and framed by the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, ABRAHAM’S LAND tells a story of atonement. Israeli Sergeant Yitzhak prides himself on righteous conduct, but when a Palestinian demonstration in Jerusalem appears threatening, he fatally shoots the provocateur, Ismail, only to realize that the victim was unarmed. Haunted by Ismail’s ghost, Yitzhak travels to Gaza to return Ismail’s identity card and ask forgiveness of his family. He must eventually choose between his desire to make amends and his duty to his country.


ABRAHAM’S LAND was originally created as a Jewish-Arab collaboration and further developed with Israeli and Palestinian teens at Seeds of Peace International Camp in the 1990s. This brand new incarnation features an exciting new libretto by Lauren Goldman Marshall and a score that will capture your heart by Pulitzer-nominated composer Roger Ames. ABRAHAM’S LAND holds a mirror up to who we think we are and asks us to see who we need to be.

To celebrate the end of No Way Theatre's second season, I was asked to join them for another virtual cabaret! This surprise performance was also in celebration of Global Parents Day this past June, so I hope you're able to sit in for an evening of music performed by myself and friends of NWT. This cabaret was streamed on May 28 and is now available for those who missed it on Youtube and Facebook.

I got the chance to be in the cast of the new musical, “Nightingale,” a show that follows Florence Nightingale’s work as one of the founders of modern nursing. A lot of work went in to translate the production into a virtual and remote form. Expect a trailer in early May during Nurses Week, and a full release during the summer! “Nightingale” will be available online for free as a gift to all of the healthcare workers who have given so much to us all. While you wait for more news, here’s a sneak peak at the song, “Kiss Her Shadow.”


"Nightingale: Regarding the Life & Passion of Miss Florence Nightingale" is written, composed, and produced by Pamela Gerke through Hearts: Health Enriched by the Arts.
