WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

New York Theatre Workshop presents three staged readings of Caryl Churchill's short play Seven Jewish Children. Each reading will be followed by a moderated discussion, with several notable authorities (from both the Israeli/Jewish and Palestinian communities) attending each performance to illuminate the dialogue. After the discussion, there will be a second reading of the ten-minute play. Seven Jewish Children was written by Churchill as a direct response to the recent events in Gaza. The play features seven scenes of Jewish parents, grandparents, and relatives attempting to explain to children how they should feel and react to the sometimes violent and confusing world around them. The play's sparse poetics touch on the major political events of the last half-century that have most affected the Jewish people, from the Holocaust, to the founding of Israel, to the Intifada, and the recent violence in Gaza. Sam Gold will direct the reading, with moderators including Laura Flanders (Wednesday, March 25), Tony Kushner and Alisa Solomon (Thursday, March 26), and Mark Crispin Miller (Friday, March 27). NYTW Members will get a priority booking period, and if any tickets remain, they will be open for reservation by the general public on Monday, March 23 by emailing tickets@nytw.org. Tickets will be confirmed by return email, and if a return confirmation is not received, the ticket order has not been processed.
