'Dai (enough)' Updates Off-Broadway Performance Schedule

Dai (enough) returns to the New York stage, written and preformed by Iris Bahr. 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.

Performances of Dai began at The 47th Street Theatre (304 West 47th Street) on Monday, November 12 with the final performance occurring on Sunday, March 2, 2008. Opening night for Dai was Monday, November 19th.  Dai shares the stage with current 47th Street occupant Forbidden Broadway: Rude Awakening.

"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," according to press notes.

A cross-section of humanity in her own right, native New Yorker Iris Bahr has been a sergeant in the Israeli army, a neuroscience researcher, a standup comedian and actress, and is the author of the current Bloomsbury published memoir Dork Whore: My Travels Through Asia as a Twenty Year Old Pseudo-Virgin. A dual citizen of America and Israel, Bahr's many television and film roles include a recurring role on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm and a co-starring role in the nationally released Larry The Cable Guy. Ms. Bahr is also the writer/performer of another solo work, Planet America, which has been optioned for development into a feature film.
