Open: 10/03/18- Close: 10/04/18 THE DYBBUK
Israel’s celebrated Gesher Theatre will return to New York City October 3 and 4 with two performances only of its new production inspired by The Dybbuk, or Between Two Worlds written by S. Ansky 1913, in a modern version written by Roy Chen, at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College (524 West 59 Street).  The Dybbuk, arguably the most iconic play of the entire canon of Jewish drama, tells the story of a young Hasidic woman who became possessed on the eve of her wedding by the dead spirit of her beloved, a young scholar whom her parents forbade her to marry. The esteemed Gesher Artistic Director Yevgeny Arye directs the cast of 25.

The schedule of performances is October 3 and 4 at 8 pm only.

Open: 03/12/18- Close: 12/30/18 THE STONE WITCH
Extraordinary art must be tamed. Simon Grindberg is the world’s most illustrious children’s book writer and illustrator —but his next masterpiece is a decade overdue. Peter Chandler is a starving artist with unparalleled potential—but he doesn’t yet know his own value. The two men are thrown together by Clair Forlorni, an ambitious editor who hopes Peter’s youthful exuberance can unleash Simon’s aging genius for one final story. But creativity comes at a cost.  The Stone Witch is a wondrous, hopeful and heartbreaking new play where imagination runs wild. The world premiere production of The Stone Witch was produced at The Berkshire Theatre Group in association with Darlene Kaplan Entertainment and Brierpatch Productions in 2016

Open: 09/19/18- Close: 10/07/18 YOU WOULDN'T EXPECT
You Wouldn’t Expect unfolds at a local Eugenics office in 1960’s North Carolina where we see the cat-and-mouse workings of the two women who work there.  Here, four African-American woman are pressured to be sterilized, part of a racist practice sanctioned by our government for over a decade.  We are also brought to the squalid shack of a pedophile father angling to get his daughter “fixed” so that he won’t have to deal with outcome of his actions, the offspring. The North Carolina Board enabled county departments of public welfare to petition the Board to sterilize their clients. The majority of these sterilizations were coerced, and academic sources have observed that this was not only an ableist and classist project but also a racist one.
