Robert Walden directed the limited engagement that began performances Sept. 2 and officially opened Sept. 7. The production was inspired by Chaim Grade's short story "My Quarrel with Hersh Rasseyner," which was later adapted into the PBS' American Playhouse teleplay "The Quarrel."
In The Quarrel, press notes state, "two estranged friends, torn apart by personal betrayal and uprooted by war, meet after years of separation. One has become an Orthodox rabbi, the other a secular writer. Their accidental meeting sparks a battle of wits that tests the limits of friendship, faith and tolerance."
Reuven Russell and Sam Guncler co-star in the production, which also features Federico Trigo.
Sam Guncler has appeared on Broadway in The Gathering as well as in the Off-Broadway stagings of Bug and The Goldman Project. Reuven Russell, who originated the role of Hersh in the stage premiere of The Quarrel, has appeared in the films "Chaplin,"" Inside Monkey Zetterland" and "The Proprietor."
