This presentation is part of the YI Love Play Readings 2022-2023 season and promises to be a captivating exploration of Jewish life in the United States. Broadway stars Eleanor Reissa (Indecent) together with Joe Delafield, Dani Marcus, Bruce Linser, Laura Turnbull, David Kwiat and Avi Hoffman will be participating in this important reading.

"The Last Survivor" is a poignant and insightful look at the subtle and not-so-subtle effects of a post-Holocaust world on a modern American woman. The play is bound together by a unique slant toward life, death, God, and love, depicting what is humanly and inhumanly possible. It is sure to leave audiences moved, entertained and inspired.
