A Dramatic Affair

Join Us for 3 World Premiere Pieces by Maine Dramatists
Tickets are now on sale for Bet Ha’am’s spring gala event!
As we did last year we have lined up 3 outstanding writers to share their work with us over Zoom and this year we have added a dramatic twist to make for an even more exciting event. Those of you who attended last year remember this fantastic fundraiser, and this year we have made it even better by adding a dramatic component. David Bass Clark returns as Master of Ceremonies and Andrew Kosak will again moderate Q&A segments. We hope that you will give generously to support the evening and Bet Ha’am.

We are thrilled to be featuring these world premiere pieces by 3 of Maine’s best-known playwrights:
Tikkun Olam, by Brent Askari
A humorous and insightful examination of how one congregant’s crisis of faith results in some unexpected advice from his rabbi.
June 20/20 reVision(s): A Fire Diary, by Bess Welden
A brand new, totally untested solo performance text-in-progress of truer than true tales about whiteness, Jewishness, and what she inherited from her father.
The Male Gaze, by Monica Wood
A woman feeling overlooked by her husband asks an older neighbor for advice. Be careful—very careful—what you wish for.
