THE CHOSEN
A MOVING FAMILY DRAMA
Adapted by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok from the novel by Chaim Potok
NOV 22 - DEC 17, 2017

Brilliant young men from rival yeshivas, Reuven and Danny first meet on a baseball diamond. When Danny fells Reuven with a line drive in the heat of competition, the two boys start a tentative and unique friendship. Growing up in the shadows of imposing and impressive fathers, the young men question their places in the world. Set against the backdrop of 1940s Brooklyn and the specter of war, Posner’s adaptation of Chaim Potok’s award-winning novel is a story of fathers and sons, tradition, modernity, and the difficult choices one must to make to achieve understanding.
