Under the direction of Steve Day, the U.S. premiere of Reed's work began performances Sept. 12 and will play a three-week run through Sept. 28.

"Rudi Vanderwaal, a gentle, 'good,' elderly gentleman living in Canada is hunted down by a Jewish reporter who insists Rudi is living a lie. Rudi's haunting past as a Nazi collaborator now demands justice. Will he have the courage to face the crimes of his youth, or flee, once again, behind a promise of grace?" ask press notes.
Designing Refuge are Rebecca Ferguson (set design), Marina Reti (costume design), Michael Jarett (lighting design) and Jonathan Rivera (sound engineer).
A talkback session with Canadian playwright Ron Reed will follow the 2 PM Sept. 20 performance. For tickets, priced $18, phone (212) 279-4200 or visit TicketCentral.
