News   Makor to Present NY Premiere of Elie Wiesel Play
 
Elie Wiesel's play The Trial of God will have its New York premiere at Makor, the West Side branch of the 92nd Street Y, for one night only, March 31 at 9 PM.

The fully staged presentation is directed by Guila Clara Kessous and features traditional dancers from the Kalaniot Dance Troupe and Klezmer musicians from KlezMITron. The cast is presenting the play in New York right after presenting it in Boston. According to press notes, "The play is set in a medieval European village, where three itinerant Jewish actors put God on trial to answer for His silence during a pogrom. This powerful drama considers post-Shoah issues surrounding faith and Jews' relationship with God."

Elie Wiesel is a Holocaust survivor who has written dozens of books, the most famous of which is his memoir "Night," which describes his imprisonment in several concentration camps. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.

Makor is located at 35 West 67th Street in Manhattan. Tickets are $20. For tickets and more information call (212) 601-1000 or visit www.makor.org.
