No Good War is a new one-act memory play, one that happens in Israel, here or anywhere, now or sometime. The play tells the story of Yael, a young female Israeli soldier who wants to be beautiful.

No Good War is about the struggles, conflicts and challenges Yael faces in the many aspects of her life: her family, her position in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF); society; and within herself, as she attempts to reconcile the mixed messages she receives about beauty and power in every aspect of her life. 

No Good War is about the struggle to be beautiful, to be good, to be a better person, to be accepted in a world where fighting seems to be the only way to achieve peace.
