The Chosen immerses its audience in the lives of two boys, two fathers, and two distinct Jewish communities, “five blocks and a world apart.” Set against the backdrop of World War II, the revelation of the Holocaust, and the founding of the State of Israel, the play is at once heartbreaking and hopeful. Its issues of Jewish identity transcend time, and difficult themes are interspersed with universally humorous moments.
Professionally directed by Mark Alan Gordon, this staged reading uses minimal set, props, and music to great effect, drawing the audience in and painting complete scenes without the use of complicated theatrics.
