Take $20 off the ticket price to Apples from the Desert at Theater J, Saturday, January 5 at 3pm
Jennifer Mendenhall and Michael Tolaydo are “a powerful pairing,” DC Theatre Scene.
A poignant drama by Savyon Liebrecht about love and reconciliation, adapted by one of Israel’s most beloved authors from her own short story, this hit Israeli play follows the young Sephardic Rivka, a religious teenager, who falls for Dooby, a secular kibbutznik, at a dance class in Jerusalem. She arranges to follow him back to his kibbutz in the Negev Desert, but not before Rivka’s orthodox parents bar her from leaving, forcibly at first, only to chase after Rivka as she flees. A timeless and timely confrontation between tradition and modernity becomes a moving reckoning, as the sweetest of meals is offered and two generations learn to make peace.
