God of Vengeance: Readers Theatre, March 8 & 9Date: March 9, 2014
In Donald Margulies' English-language adaptation of one of the most iconic and controversial plays from the Yiddish theatre, Jack Chapman runs a brothel on the first floor of his tenement and while he is prosperous, he is not virtuous. For his daughter Rivkele, however, Jack aspires for something more--respectability through her marriage to a religious scholar. But Rivkele's tender love affair with Manke, one of Jack's prostitutes, threatens to destroy the upcoming marriage, and with it, Jack's dream of redemption.
The original Yiddish play was by Sholem Asch. This performance is directed by Doug Brook.
