Casting for the reading, which is open to the public, will be announced at a later date. Based on a true story, Women’s Minyan, press note state, is a "spellbinding exploration of religious fundamentalism in a patriarchal society. In an effort to save her life, Chana leaves her abusive husband, only to suffer the powerful wrath of the rabbinical courts. Women’s Minyan explores the boundaries between religion and social convention, right and wrong, and a woman's true place in a male-dominated religious world."
