Cost: Members- $18 for all sessions. Non-members- $25 for all sessions. Participants should purchase or obtain their own copies of the plays.
Background on the plays:
If I Forget (2017) by Steven Levenson is a family drama set on the brink of 9/11. Join us for a discussion of this contemporary play written by this very current and in-demand playwright, well-lauded for his book of the Tony award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen.
Oslo (2016) by J.T. Rogers is a Tony award winner for Best Play. This is a darkly funny, politically savvy, behind-the-scenes look at the 1993 Oslo Accords.
The Jew of Seville (1844) was written by the 20 year-old, New Orleans born, expatriate in Paris, Victor Séjour. This unique work will challenge us to understand the perspective of a converso Jew-in-hiding living under the Spanish Inquisition.
