News   A Splintered Soul Plays Off-Broadway's Theater Three Beginning Oct. 21 ARLA Productions & Rosalind Productions present the Off-Broadway premiere of Alan Lester Brooks' A Splintered Soul, which begins previews Oct. 21 at Theater Three prior to an official opening Oct. 24.

Directed by Daisy Walker, performances will continue through Nov. 13.

The cast comprises Lisa Bostnar (The Voysey Inheritance, Madras House), Ella Dershowitz (upcoming "Phil Spector Biopic" written and directed by David Mamet for HBO), Michael Samuel Kaplan (Off-Broadway in Craig Lucas’ adaptation of Miss Julie at Rattlestick), David Lavine (Counsellor-At-Law, Obie and Lortel Awards), John Michalski (Herzl, Sherlock Holmes, Gorey Stories, Gross Indecency), Anya Migdal (HERO Theatre's Three Sisters), Kenny Morris (Broadway's Hairspray) and Sid Solomon (Romeo and Juliet, The Comedy of Errors for The Acting Company).

Set in San Francisco, 1947, the play, press notes state, concerns "a group of Jewish refugees [who] arrive from Poland, aided by the American Jewish community. Haunted by the death of their loved ones, they are haunted more by what they did to survive. Rabbi Kroeller, a resistance fighter who lost his family, makes it his mission to protect the survivors at all costs. But he discovers determining right from wrong is more complicated in the new world, when he takes matters into his own hands, and a mysterious disappearance occurs with unforeseen consequences."

The production has scenic design by Kevin Judge, lighting design by Patricia M. Nichols, costume design by Lucille Lortel nominee Valerie Marcus Ramshur and sound design by Nathan Leigh.

Born in 1942, playwright Alan Lester Brooks is a physician by profession and an author by preference. Brooks, production notes state, "grew up with a great awareness of the events in Europe in that decade and beyond. As his surviving relatives came to America from Europe, he met and grew up among the characters in this play." Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.

Theater Three is located at 311 West 43rd Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues, on the 3rd floor. Tickets are $18; to purchase tickets or for more information, visit www.asplinteredsoul.com or call (212) 868-4444.
