Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of Joshua Harmon's Prayer for the French Republic opened February 1 at New York City Center.

The play begins in 1944 with a Jewish couple awaiting news of their missing family and follows five generations of a French Jewish family in its examination of history, home, and the effects of an ancient hatred.
