“Merciful Father” by Atar Hadari
November 1st – 12th
All shows at 8PM
Fort Washington Collegiate Church (729 West 181st Street)
A brothel owner commissions the creation of a Torah scroll to win a respectable husband for his daughter. His daughter instead chooses ill repute. Based on the scandalous Yiddish play “God of Vengeance” by Sholem Asch.
“Lost/Not Found” by Kirby Fields
After a successful Drama Shop presentation last November, UP is pleased to present a full production of this play by “K Comma Joseph” playwright Kirby Fields. Three desperate twenty-somethings from Washington Heights “rescue” a missing autistic girl and detain her, while the growing reward for her return offers visions of riches. What they learn about themselves, however, may prove to be the more valuable bounty.
And of course our season would not be complete without:
- “Onward & Upward” Annual Benefit
- Showing UP artists’ salons
- Dead of Winter Reading Series
