POWERFUL POLITICAL PIECES

  • Mr Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv presented by Infinithéâtre plays at the St-James Theatre (265 Rue Saint-Jacques). Part farce, part suspenseful drama, award-winning writer Oren Safdie’s play is a jaw-rattling ride through the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, where allegiances constantly shift, religion is irreverent, and politics is a matter of survival. Buy tickets online ($12 – 25)
