Set from dark until morning, Peace Warriors seizes upon and shakes out the Lewis family, their closest friend and the guest they are hosting until each character confesses their political and personal passions and paramours. The play and its characters set out at the beginning of the evening to have a pluralistic conversation among Jews about Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As the weight of these ideological debates gets messier, what comes to the forefront is not just politics, but personal infidelity. In this world, Scooter's right leaning stance, punctuated with cynical zingers and continuously refreshed G & T's, makes him the weakest but most endearing of the group. His daughter and their guest, an Israeli actress and peace activist recognize his heart, but ultimately both side against him, remaining to the left with GW the charismatic family friend and Darryl, Scooter's wife. What makes this latter dynamic interesting to watch, is that GW uses his lead position at a prestigious institute to hold both the power and prowess in this play. And he wields his standing with deft ruthlessness. Each becomes in some sense his victim, but no one more so than Darryl, because she still "likes the guy."
