The Playwrights Realm presents the U.S. premiere of DOV AND ALI - a new drama by playwright Anna Ziegler, author of the critically acclaimed play BFF. Previews began June 5th prior to an official press opening of June 12th Off-Broadway at The Cherry Lane Studio Theatre (38 Commerce Street) in Manhattan. Playwrights Realm Co-Artistic Director Katherine Kovner directs.

Once upon a time, in the middle of a school, in the middle of Detroit, in the middle of the United States of America, there was a confused teacher and a precocious student. When Dov, an orthodox Jew, and Ali, a strict Muslim, get caught in a cultural crossfire, both are confronted with the same choice: Will they stand by their beliefs or face the devastating consequences?

Scheduled June 5 through June 27, performances of DOV AND ALI run Tuesdays - Fridays at 7:00pm, and Saturdays at 2:00pm &7:00pm at the Cherry Lane Studio (38 Commerce Street). Tickets range from $20 - $30 and can be reserved by calling TeleCharge at 212-239-6200 or online at
