News   Wright's Gaza-Inspired The Human Scale to Play Joe's Pub; Eustis Directs
 
Public Theater artistic director Oskar Eustis will direct the world premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright's The Human Scale at Joe's Pub.

Wright (My Trip to Al Quaeda) will workshop the latest piece that offers "an unsparing and graphic exploration of the ongoing crisis in Gaza." Performances will take place March 17, 20 and 21. "Larry Wright is a brilliant journalist, an eloquent writer, and a beautiful performer," Eustis said in a statement. "The Human Scale is, quite simply, indispensable; it's the best reporting on and analysis of the crisis in Gaza available to us."

Wright, a staff writer for The New Yorker, co-wrote the screenplay for 1998's "The Siege" and the Showtime movie "Noreiga: God's Favorite," among others. My Trip to Al Quaeda is being made into a documentary film by Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney. His books include "City Children, Country Summer"; "In the New World: Growing Up with America, 1960 – 1984"; "Saints & Sinners"; "Remembering Satan"; "Twins: Genes, Environment, and the Mystery of Identity"; and "God's Favorite."

For tickets phone (212) 967-7555 or visit PublicTheater. Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street.
