Israeli Stage presents Never Ever Ever

Written by Sivan Ben Yishai, Starring Jordan Ahnquist

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Monday, February 9 (7:30pm)

This touching portrayal of a teenage boy dealing with dyslexia was the winner of four Israeli Assitej Awards in 2013. Yoni runs away from school, from home, from himself. He runs away the moment he’s confronted with the words disabled or dyslexic. In this moving, one-man play, Ben Yishai provides the audience an experience of what it’s like to feel like an outsider, feeling different, being differently-abled, yet, at the same time whole.  Show is performed as a staged reading.
 
Post-performance conversation with actor Jordan Ahnquist , director Guy Ben-Aharon, and Beth Crastnopol and Jen Newman from Gateways: Access to Jewish Education. Light refreshments.

Israeli Stage is dedicated to exposing audiences to the works of Israeli playwrights, offering high-quality artistic, apolitical programming to help promote Israeli culture in a meaningful way.

All JCC arts and humanities offerings are programs of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts. 
 
Co-sponsored by Gateways, Jewish Big Brother Big Sister, JCC Inclusion and Support Services, Jewish Vocational Service, and Yachad.
