Description

Adapted and directed by Aaron Posner

Based upon the novel by Chaim Potok

Designed by Jim Kronzer, Nancy Schertler, James Sugg and Kate Turner Walker

Featuring Rick Foucheux, Edward Gero and Aaron Davidman with Derek Thompson and Joshua Morgan

The much beloved story of two boys, two fathers, and two very different Jewish communities in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Aaron Posner’s award-winning adaptation introduces us to two passionate, intelligent boys on opposite sides of a baseball game. When the game takes a turn, and Reuven is injured by Danny, a unique friendship is born. Theater J is thrilled to offer this 10th anniversary staging of its hit production as Arena Stage’s first local guest company in residence.
