‘That's What She Said’ features stories of and about Israeli women.

In honor of the historic U.S. elections featuring the first female presidential candidate, Israel Story presents a brand new live show featuring a very specific kind of protagonist--women! "That's What She Said" features stories of and about Israeli women.

"That’s What She Said” tells the extraordinary stories of remarkable Israeli women, including the friendship between Moshe Dayan's 99-year-old widow and Yasser Arafat's mother-in-law; a Bedouin woman’s “silent revolution”; and a Jewish transgender woman's journey to self-discovery. With radio-style storytelling, live music, singing, dance and video and other mixed-media magic, this evening will showcase exciting stage adaptations of the show's most popular stories.

Often referred to as the Israeli "This American Life," Israel Story is an award-winning podcast that celebrates their country’s diverse cultures and traditions by bringing everyday, yet extraordinary stories to life. Israel Story is distributed by PRX and produced in partnership with Tablet, a daily online magazine of Jewish news, ideas, and culture.
