Share story

Actor Aaron Davidman joins MPR News' Euan Kerr to discuss "Wrestling Jerusalem" which The San Francisco Chronicle described as a "remarkable solo performance." 

Set in America, Israel and Palestine, Wrestling Jerusalem follows one man's journey to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

Davidman's performance is a personal story that grapples with the complexities of identity, history and social justice. Giving voice to 17 different characters, the play sheds light on one of the most entrenched conflicts of our time.
