'Dai (enough)' in Final Weeks; Ends Limited Engagement Mar
Dai (enough), Iris Bahr's acclaimed one-woman play is the final weeks of its limited engagement, with performances through March 2 at The 47th Street Theatre.
Written and performed by Iris Bahr (www.DaiThePlay.com), Dai premiered last season at The Culture Project, after which it played a sold-out month-long engagement at the Edinburgh Theatre Festival in August. In addition to receiving two 2007 NY Drama Desk Award nominations, including Best Solo Performance, and a UK Stage Award nomination for Best Solo Performance at this year's Edinburgh Festival, Bahr played an invitation-only performance of Dai in May for more than 100 U.N. Ambassadors and Diplomats at the personal request of Israeli UN Ambassador, Dan Gillermann.
"Dai transports us into the fast-paced world of a bustling Tel Aviv café, just moments before a suicide bomber enters. Brought to life through Iris Bahr's razor sharp characterizations, members of all strata of Israeli society, as well as its observers and critics, are captured in what are to be their final moments. But it is Bahr's ability to find the humor and humanity in even the most dire and tragic circumstances that makes Dai sparkle, as we come to know these eccentric, lost, troubled souls, and peer into their hilarious lives, quirks and neuroses," explain press notes.
Remaining performances are Saturday February 9 at 6:30PM; Sunday February 10 at 5:30PM; Wednesday February 13 at 6:30PM; Friday February 15 at 6:30PM; Saturday February 16 at 6:30PM; Sunday February 17 at 5:30PM; Wednesday February 20 at 6:30PM; Friday February 22 at 6:30PM; Saturday February 23 at 6:30PM; Sunday February 24 at 5:30PM; Wednesday February 27 at 6:30PM; Friday February 29 at 6:30PM; Saturday March 1 at 6:30PM and Sunday March 2 at 5:30PM.
