6:30 PM - 9:30 PMOverture Center, 201 State Street, Madison, WI 53703-2214

Join TBE friends, and friends from the entire Madison Jewish community, for this Forward Theater play that has received great reviews. Meet before the show in the lobby for a pre-show lecture to learn about the history, themes, and creation of this production of “The Wanderers.” Stick around after the play for a talkback with the artists. 

This play centers around two couples: Esther and Schmuli are young Orthodox Jews whose future is written in scripture. Abe and Sophie believe they can write their own destiny. On the surface, these two couples couldn’t seem more different. But when a Hollywood actress upends Abe’s world, the hidden connections between all of them start to appear. This funny and mysterious drama explores the question of whether happiness lies in what we have, or on the road not taken. 

Presented in person in the Playhouse at Overture Center.

6:30 pm Pre-show lecture
7:30 pm Show followed by a post-show discussion 

Students and educators just $10, general public $20 for ticket and discussion.
