UPCOMING PRODUCTIONS:

Theater and Theology is delighted to partner with the Jerusalem Theatre's Mikro Theatre Troupe to premiere The Chair by Haim Watzman during Mikro's Sukkot 2023 Jerusalem Theater Arts Festival.

 

The Chair is an adaptation and commentary on the book of Hosea with a wry take on certain aspects of modern life in Israel. 

 

We are planning to hold a staged reading on Sukkot, 2023, in the beautiful grounds of the Hebrew Union College for about 40 audience members only. The event comprises a half-day program including an experiential Bibliodramatic study of the book of Hoshea, an actors-and-audience Sukkah picnic, the staged reading, and then a discussion with the audience. Together, the playwright, director, and audience members will workshop this relevant and impactful play and help shape it for its Spring 2024 theater premiere. The play includes adult themes and content (as does the book of Hoshea itself) and is not suitable for children. 

For details about the whole program, click HERE.

Haim Watzman’s Necessary Stories appeared in The Times of Israel every four weeks for several years. He is the author of Company CA Crack in the Earth, and a collection, Necessary Stories. For more information on his books, and an archive of all his Necessary Stories, visit Southjerusalem.com.

Sherri Mandell wrote a heartrending and hope-giving book in the year after her son Koby's murder. Salovey's play brings that year searingly to life.
