This award-winning drama tells the powerful story of Asher Lev, a boy prodigy driven to be an artist at any cost – against the will of family, community and tradition. Born into a Hasidic family during World War II in Brooklyn, his artistic genius threatens to estrange him from both parents and his observant Jewish community. The play follows Asher as he matures as both an artist and a Jew. This modern classic presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of what it means to be an artist and examines the tension and conflict between religious belief and artistic freedom and vision.
