OF THE BETTER KIND by Joy Cohen, a staged reading May 19-21
Theatre Kavanah premieres a staged reading of a play by Joy Cohen. In 1910 Burlington, the day before his work is to be unveiled, artist Ben Zion Black struggles to complete the interior mural for the Chai Adam Synagogue. The community is aflutter as preparations are made and nerves frayed. Will the mural be a cause for rejoicing...or something else?
This is a story of change, fear, love, art, culture, and ultimately: survival.
On May 20th only, join us for a delicious nosh and special music program conceived by Brian Perkins and featuring the O.N.E. Neighborhood Band following the reading.

Inspired by the Lost Shul Mural Project and real people and events, this play sheds light on a hidden history in Burlington. Two other fascinating Theatre Kavanah events lead up to the play - LITTLE JERUSALEM on April 6 and RAISE THE ROOF on May 11-- documentary film screenings with special guests that provide deeper understanding and context for Of the Better Kind.
- If this were a movie, we'd rate it PG-13.
- This play was commissioned by Theatre Kavanah.
- All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges.
