The Portrait of an Angel, a Lion, a Monster
|Sales have ended for this event.
A lyrical, nonlinear, three-act play with absurdist elements, The Portrait of an Angel, a Lion, a Monster comes alive in the hands of director Ali Kamran, making his New York directorial debut with this production at TheaterLab. The play has its Bay Area Premiere at Central Stage in February 2022.
With its strong Jewish backdrop, the play takes the audience through an intimate internal journey that suggests happy families are not all alike.
Playwright Katrin Arefy explains: The Portrait of an Angel, a Lion, a Monsters a love story, first and foremost: it talks about transformation and miracles. But I also wanted this play to draw attention to the ongoing crisis caused by an irrational hatred of Jews not by focusing on the Holocaust or widely-publicized hate crimes against Jews but by subtly highlighting the beauty of Judaism, by honestly drawing a portrait of an extraordinary Jewish man. I hope the play will compel the viewer to contemplate God, love, and the complexity of being human.
