Author Daniel Hirsch
Los Angeles, California

PLAY DESCRIPTION

In an alternate queer history, a group of religious refugees have made a new home in the remains of an old palace in a remote desert outpost. But when an enemy army arrives, they must decide if and how to escape and find a new home.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Situation: Miriam must convince her girlfriend Talia to leave the home they've built for themselves, and the people they care about, to go somewhere new.

Note from Playwright: I wrote this piece after traveling to Israel with a trip primarily LGBTQ identified people. This particular scene was inspired by visiting Masada, a fraught site for the politics and history of Israel.
