In Williamsburg, Brooklyn's Hasidic Jewish community, tradition runs deep. But that tradition can also be suffocating. A funny, poignant and provocative new play by Preston Hollow's Miki Bone, Division Avenue explores the tension between identity and ideals, tradition and the modern world. In it, Ephraim, a widowed Hasidic man, seeks out a new world beyond Williamsburg only to find himself caught by the new technology of cell phone tracking. Meanwhile, a legal battle rages over the removal of bicycle pathways in the neighborhood -- a debate that pits the ultra-orthodox Hasidim (Ephraim's parents included) against yuppies and hipsters.
