Picking Up Stones: An American Jew Wakes to a Nightmare

3:00PM - 6:00PM  

Unitarian Universalist Congregation of South County 27 North Road
Peace Dale, RI 02879

Support community member Sandra Laub as she performs a one woman staged reading about her personal reaction to the Israel/Hamas war.

Last year, Sandra Laub, playwright/actor/educator, wrote and performed Picking Up Stones: An American Jew’s Moral Dilemma, a solo play aimed at balancing opposing views about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. But after the terrible events of October 7, 2023, Laub rewrote her play, adding new voices and new perspectives that have emerged in the wake of grief, heartache, and fear. Some of the many questions the play asks are: How, in the midst of war, can we still dream of peace? Can the world understand and sympathize with two seemingly opposing groups of innocent people? Is peace still possible after such trauma on both sides?

Picking Up Stones: An American Jew Wakes to a Nightmare, is Laub’s reaction to the Israel/Hamas war from Day 1 through Day 30. Sandra Laub commands the stage in this 115-minute one woman staged reading.  A talkback with Sandra will take place immediately following the play.

NOTE: The play is meant for adults as it contains some graphic descriptions of war.
