"The Sarah Play" (Kansas City 2017) — CLOSING NIGHT

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

(May 1-18) — Three actors struggle with how to tell the ancient, sacred story of Sarah and Hagar, the mothers of Isaac and Ishmael, through a modern lens. Drawing from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions, and trying various iterations to determine which religion’s version of the narrative gets told, the actors wrestle with how to tell a tale when there are multiple accounts of what happened.

Running as part of The In[heir]itance Project's The Genesis Plays, a national theater series created to put communities in conversation with stories from the Torah. This festival is a completion of that cycle — 5 plays made in different cities around the United States, performed in NYC for the very first time over 3 weeks at the 14th Street Y, all inspired by stories from 1 book. Conceived by Jon Adam Ross and Directed by Chantal Pavageaux.

With generous support from The Covenant Foundation. In Association with Downtown Jewish Life.
