Eight Nights by Jennifer Maisel – Reading and Panel on Immigration and Refugee Rights

Congregation Nevei Kodesh will present a staged reading of the powerful new play by LA writer, Jennifer Maisel on the first night of Hanukkah, December 12th, at 6:30pm.
The play presents the lives that inhabit an apartment from 1949 to 2016. A young refugee woman finally free to start anew in the United States tries to vanquish the past that haunts her, alongside her father, husband, friends, daughter and granddaughter. The story encompasses the plights of historical and modern refugees and takes a look at what might seem very different circumstances but at its core, present the same issues of horrifying conditions and the opportunity and hope that something better lies ahead.
Immediately following the reading which has been cast with some of the very best talent in the Denver/Boulder area (including Rabbi Marc Soloway), a panel of immigrant and refugee rights speakers, the playwright and director, will discuss the issues of immigration to the US, then and now.
