Israeli Stage to Present OH, GOD, Begin. 9/29
Israeli Stage presents Anat Gov's touching comedy about faith in secular society, Oh, God, featuring Will Lyman of PBS's FRONTLINE and Maureen Keiller, directed by Guy Ben-Aharon. The play will be followed by a talk-back and a reception.
SYNOPSIS: In this witty, poignant and touching play, a psychotherapist named Ella, single mother of an autistic child, gets a visit from a new, desperate patient, God.
ANAT GOV passed away of cancer in December, 2012. She was one of Israel's most celebrated playwrights, leaving behind an impressive body of work that was 'distinctly Israeli' (Ha'aretz).
