Stage Launches College Tour
Israeli Stage and Producing Artistic Director,
Guy Ben-Aharon have announced a six-stop New England
College Tour of award-winning Israeli writer Savyon Liebrecht’s
"Apples From The Desert." Performances are scheduled
from March 17 - 28 . Sponsored by the Israel Campus Roundtable
and Combined Jewish Philanthropies, the tour allows Israeli Stage
to present Israeli culture to new audiences in universities in and around
Over the past year, Israeli Stage has presented six staged
readings with Elliot Norton and IRNE Award
winners Will LeBow, Thomas Derrah, Jeremiah Kissel and
OBIE-Award winner Melia Bensussen, the majority
of which were performed at the Goethe Institut Boston,
with one at Harvard University’s Fong Auditorium
and another at Emerson College’s Bill Bordy Theater.
With a hope-filled spirit, Savyon Liebrecht sketches the
life of a young Israeli woman who falls under the shadow of terrifying
social rifts -- the ethnic rift between Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jews and
the religious rift between religious and secular society. By the end of
the play, Liebrecht enables the audience to discover the possibilities
embodied in both a future that transcends these rifts and a time and place
where women are free to choose their religious commitments and love interests.
Performance Schedule, in date order:
Saturday, March 17, 8 p.m.
Sunday, March 18, 5 p.m.
Thursday, March 22, 7:30 p.m.
Friday, March 23, 8:30 p.m.
