Everything happens within 24 hours: the Kaufmanns, a dysfunctional Jewish family, decide to cross Jerusalem during the second Intifada, to visit a Palestinian restaurant they have the best hummus – All Jews, who dare go, eat for free. In the restaurant they meet Palestinian acquaintances, awakening ghosts from a shared past. Nothing is as it seems, everyone has secrets. Nonetheless, a spark of love ignites a series of revelations and chain of events under the extreme duress of Jerusalem, a vibrant city on continuous bomb alert.

In Crossing Jerusalem, emotion, humour and irony abound. The current international, political mood swings beg to keep the discourse about Israel and Palestine alive. In this truly explosive work for the stage, no one is spared.
