  • Published: Sep 17, 2015 11:45AM

The Arab-Israeli Cookbook, a play examining the stories of people caught up in the Arab-Israeli conflict, opens the 2015-2016 Taylor University Theatre season with shows the weekend of September 25-27.

Written by British playwright Robin Soans, the script for The Arab-Israeli Cookbook was created as a result of a collaboration with two directors, one Arab and one Jewish, and is based on a series of interviews with people from all walks of life – farmers, fishermen, photographers, students, the young, the old.

Show times are:

September 25, 26, 8:00 p.m., and September 27, 2:00 p.m.

All shows are in the Mitchell Theatre at the Rupp Communication Arts Complex.
