Two Birds One Stone is approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.

Rimah Jabr was born a Muslim Palestinian, Natasha Greenblatt was born a Jewish Canadian. They met for the first time in Toronto, but have they seen each other before? Two Birds One Stone is a fictional documentary that investigates the forces that push us through time and across continents to find each other. This is a play that asks complicated questions about identity, privilege, and home. To encourage dialogue and a richer experience of the play, each performance will include a post-show discussion led by Karen Ridd (M.A. Peace and Justice: Governor-General’s Gold Medal), instructor in Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies at MSC.

When Sam has a vision of drifting through the mechitzah (the barrier separating men and women in Orthodox synagogues) it launches a unique spiritual and religious journey. Sam/Sholem comes out, first as transgender and then as an Orthodox Jew. Struggling to balance family dynamics, history, activism and Talmud study, Sam wonders if, as Rabbi Nachman said, “All the world is a very narrow bridge.”
