The Merkaz's Center Stage Theatre presents THE CHOSEN By Chaim Potok: Adapted from the original by Chaim Potok and Aaron Posner; Adapted for the Jerusalem Stage by Rafi Poch

Co-Directed by Jeremy Saltan and Rafi Poch

Theatrical adaptation of the award winning novel is the story of two boys, two fathers and two very different Jewish Communities - "five blocks and a world apart" in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in the 1940's. Set against the backdrop of WWII, the revelation of the holocaust, and the desperate struggle of Zionism, THE CHOSEN remains not essentially essentially political or religious but deeply human. Reuven Malter and Danny Saunders are both passionate young men. When Reuven is injured by Danny during a heated baseball game between their rival yeshivot, a unique friendship is born. As the boys grow to manhood, they are forced to learn important lessons about each other, their fathers and themselves. This is a story of friendship, family and difficult choices that we must all make on the path to understanding, respect and reconciliation.
