In response to the recent massacre at the Tree of Life Synogogue in Pittsburgh, we are producing 8 Nights of Eight Nights: a national series of play readings as a fundraiser to benefit HIAS.

 

Eight Nights, a new play by Jennifer Maisel, is the story of a nineteen year old German-Jewish refugee who tried to escape Nazi Germany on the SS St. Louis, was sent back to Europe, then survived a concentration camp, to reunite with her father after 10 years. The play takes place over eight nights of Chanukah, over eight decades of her life.  It explores the refugee experience, as well as the trauma mirrored in the experiences of the African-American community, the interned Japanese citizens and the current Syrian crisis, and ends just before Trump takes office and institutes his Muslim ban.

 

The vision is to deliver the play’s message on a national scale by staging local readings on eight different nights in eight different cities across the county over the next year.  Here's the schedule!

 

Night 1:  Denver CO, 12/9/18
Curious Theatre in association with Theatre Or. Directed by Amy Feinberg

Night 2:  New York City, NY 4/8/19
Bay Street Theater and Jewish Plays Project. Hosted by City Winery NYC.
