Israeli actress, Yafit Josephson, a former soldier in the Israeli army and a USC School of Theater alumna, stars in NEW EYES, a one-woman autobiographical play running in LA and across the US for over 2 years with rave reviews, written by Suzanne Bressler and Yafit Josephson and directed by Sammie Wayne.
NEW EYES tells the life story of Yafit, a young woman living in Israel who joins the Israeli army as part of her mandatory service to her country.

Just as her native country wrestles with the worlds false perceptions, Yafit must decide how far she is willing to go to challenge, change, or accept how others see her, and what she is willing to risk to fulfill her dreams and destiny.
