Motti Lerner, Live!
Saturday, November 16, 2013
Join JRC and the Silk Road Rising Theatre Company for a special evening with celebrated Israeli playwright Motti Lerner. Motti will talk about his new play, Paulus, which tells the story of the Apostle Paul and his effort to transform what was originally a sect within Judaism into a global religion. The play frames this as an intra-Jewish debate, and from that viewpoint, creatively imagines how the rivalries, conflicts and dynamics among the Jewish establishment, local Church leaders, the Roman authorities and others may have played out.
Motti Lerner is an internationally-acclaimed Israeli playwright, screenwriter, political activist and teacher. His work has been produced in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Australia and Israel.
