About this show

Adapted from the Yiddish short story (1951) and the award-winning film (1991), this provocative play follows a chance encounter between two estranged friends, each believing that the other had perished in the concentration camps. One man is an Orthodox rabbi, the other a secular writer. Their experiences and loss during the Holocaust have reinforced the rabbi's trust in religious faith and the writer's trust in himself. Capturing the sweet and sad memories of two men revisiting their past, The Quarrel confronts the spiritual questions raised by these survivors' opposing lifestyles.
