ABOUT 14 DAYS
In July of 2000, with only six months left in President Bill Clinton’s second term in office, years of relentless negotiation between Israelis and Palestinians, largely mediated by American diplomats under the leadership of Ambassador Dennis Ross, culminated in one final, dramatic effort to end the conflict. President Clinton, Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak gathered their most trusted U.S., Palestinian and Israeli negotiators, respectively, at Camp David in the Catoctin Mountains of Western Maryland under the coordination of Ambassador Ross. The goal was as simple as it was breathtaking: come down from the mountain with a declaration of an end to hostilities and a mutually agreed-upon plan that would lead to independent Jewish and Palestinian states living side by side in peace. Although the negotiations ultimately failed to achieve a peace agreement, the saga of this effort as set forth in Fourteen Days, never before portrayed on stage, represents a timeless story of the struggle to overcome ancient enmities, and a tragedy of Shakespearian proportions as leaders struggle to overcome personal ambition, grievances and fears as they confront the painful decisions necessary to achieve peace.
