How can two directly opposing ideas exist together? Chaim Potok’s classic novel intimately explores such complex and thought-provoking questions in a moving adaptation for the stage. It’s 1940s Brooklyn where two Jewish boys, Reuven and Danny, live five blocks and a world apart. One of them is Orthodox, the other is Hasidic, and they’re both immersed in the religious instruction of their fathers and the traditions of their communities. But fate plays its hand, in the strangest of ways, and forges a life-changing friendship as they grow into adulthood.
This hugely popular adaptation — often selling out theatres across the U.S. — is a heartfelt exploration of Jewish culture and the human ability to reach out across differences.
