Netanyahu Play Reading Coming to CU

Ami Dayan

The Denver Center Theatre Company is presenting a free staged reading of Iddo Netanyahu’s new play, “A HAPPY END”, directed by Ami Dayan.  The reading will be held on Thursday, May 5th, 2011 at 7:30 pm at the CU Boulder Theatre Building (on campus on the south side of the Norlin Quad.)

FREE! Reservations: AHEonSTAGE@gmail.com

Berlin 1932, days after the elections which will soon bring Hitler to power. Mark Erdmann is an acclaimed Jewish physicist, the head of the atomic lab at the University of Berlin. His wife Leah, an avid consumer of the city’s rich cultural life, is having an affair with Mark’s young German assistant. The signs of impending danger are increasing, but the power of self-delusion persists as the Jewish couple ponders whether to seek an unknown future outside Germany or to stay put and succumb to a fate known to us in hindsight.

“A Happy End” was first produced in Italy, labeled there by a national critic as “oxygen for the Italian theater.” It has since been produced in Tel Aviv to great success and critical acclaim.  A talkback with the creative team will follow the staged readings. We look forward to your input as we prepare for a US premiere.

The reading is co-sponsored by Maya Productions, Theatre Or, and The Boulder International Fringe Festival

Hosted by the CU Department of Theatre & Dance

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
