At Night’s End, A Play by Motti Lerner
Wednesday, Oct. 31 – Saturday, Nov. 3
Harbach Theatre, Ford Center for Fine Arts
At Night’s End by Motti Lerner, Knox College visiting Israeli scholar and internationally renowned playwright, will be directed by Neil Blackadder. Lerner is an award-winning playwright and screenwriter, whose work for the stage has been produced in many countries including the US, Germany, and South Africa. Most of his plays and films deal with political issues, including this, his latest play, which is set in Haifa at the peak of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, and explores the impact of that conflict on one Israeli family.
This will be the third time Lerner has visited Knox; in addition to teaching a course and giving public lectures, he will be directly involved with students in the rehearsal process and in events accompanying the production. The set design will be by Visiting Assistant Professor of Theatre Ian Zywica, whose designs are featured regularly throughout the Chicago professional theatre scene.
