It’s the start of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, in which a beleaguered Meir considers using her nuclear arsenal,. The play leaps back and forth in time, explaining not only the prime minister’s life story but that of the state of Israel as well.
Meir’s story — experiencing a Russian pogrom to growing up in Milwaukee, her emigration to Palestine, her life in a kibbutz and the behind-the-scenes stories of the creation of Israel — are probing, tough, witty, mesmerizing and maternal.
Harper makes her character believable not just as a stage presence but as a serious and steely leader of her country at a moment of world brinkmanship. Valerie Harper exudes the essence of Golda Meir, one of Israel’s most revered leaders.
