Paulus - A Staged Reading

St Paul Icon

February 17 - February 19, 2012

A STAGED READING
Written by Motti Lerner
Translated by Hillel Halkin
Directed by Daniella Topol

Pierce Hall at The Historic Chicago Temple Building, 77 W. Washington St., Chicago

Friday, February 17th at 8pm; Saturday, February 18th at 8pm; Sunday, February 19th at 2pm.

PAULUS explores Paulus of Tarsus, the bridger of Christianity from a Jewish sect to a Gentile religion, and his vision to universalize monotheism in the face of strong opposition by the Jewish Establishment, the Jerusalem Church, and the Emperor Nero.

This historical drama weaves through Paul's past and present, guided by his fears and inspirations, and dramatizes the role that Jesus played on Paul's psyche after Jesus' crucifixion. 

Written by one of Israel's leading playwrights, PAULUS examines the struggle Paul faced to achieve his vision and the impact of that vision on the world.

Each performance is followed by a talk-back with the playwright.

COST: Free and open to the public.
