Sandra Laub, an award-winning actress and veteran teacher, has been performing William Gibson’s Tony Award-winning one-woman play, Golda’s Balcony, in a variety of settings—theaters, classrooms, social halls, sanctuaries—to critical acclaim and heartfelt audience response since 2013.
Golda’s Balcony is a 90-minute tour-de force. With humor, pathos, and passion, we see her journey from impoverished child in Czarist Russia to becoming Israel’s 4th Prime Minister scrambling to save the country from impending destruction during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. At the heart of the play is Meir’s lifelong struggle to attain peace while agonizing over difficult moral choices, including especially the ‘terrible question’: “What happens when idealism becomes power?”
The birth of a nation and the pioneering spirit of its founders are embodied in Golda Meir. She was a wife, a mother, a worker, and attained extraordinary stature on the world stage. Golda’s struggle to reconcile the power Israel attained as a sovereign nation with the competing forces of family, as well as humanitarian considerations personalizes the taut drama centered on Israel’s ‘secret’ nuclear capability: Golda’s view “into hell.”
For some audience members, this is a “new” story. After one performance, three generations of one family told how meaningful it was to see the play together: grandparents and parents remembering, grandchild learning — a story that must be continually told and never forgotten.
