POLITICS IN BED BY DAVID ZELLNIK
JESS: I have family in Israel!
TOM: I have family in Texas, doesn’t mean you can’t hate Ted Cruz!”
Originally written for Noor Theatre's 48 Hour Forum, Politics in Bed exposes the fault lines of a married couple when Israel comes up… and becomes surreal when the news story they are discussing comes alive in their bed room, and won’t leave.
