Summary

Summary

(Applause Books). The rise of Golda Meir from impoverished Russian schoolgirl to Prime Minister of Israel is one of the most amazing stories of the 20th century. Now her life has been transformed into a one-woman play of overwhelming power and triumph by William Gibson, author of The Miracle Worker . Golda's Balcony earned actress Tovah Feldshuh a 2003 Drama Desk award. "Enlightening ... Now, hearing from someone who was there at the birth of the country, who sacrificed to make that happen, helps remind us where the Middle East standoff came from and why it never seems to end." The New York Times "A valentine to the famously tough prime minister." New York Post
