LAST TREE IN JERUSALEM / A PAGE OF TALMUD
Two Plays by: Dani Horowitz
A Page of Talmud was written in collaboration with Yaakov Raz
Translated from the Hebrew by:
Yoni Oppenheim (Last Tree in Jerusalem)
Dr. Yael S. Feldman and Michael Posnick (A Page of Talmud)
Riven by internal strife, ecological disaster, and interference from foreign powers, can society survive? Set nearly two millennia ago but still resonant today, acclaimed Israeli playwright Dani Horowitz’s interrelated plays Last Tree in Jerusalem (world premiere translation) and A Page of Talmud tell the seminal Talmudic stories “Kamtza and Bar Kamtza” and “The Oven of Achnai.” These timely Jewish stories examine the cost of humiliation and explore what it means to be a member of a community, to be a leader, to have moral courage, and to resist.
