DC’s Theater J won’t produce anti-Israel play, but…

 

(JNS.org) The Washington DC Jewish Community Center’s (DCJCC) Theater J troupe will not produce Israeli playwright Motti Lerner’s “The Admission,” following concerns that the play reflects an anti-Israel perspective, the Washington Jewish Week reported. Instead, Theater J will be present the play as a workshop with audience feedback. The decision was made “to give the work the context that the work and the audience deserve,” DCJCC CEO Carole Zawatsky said. A group called Citizens Opposed to Propaganda Masquerading as Art since 2009 has opposed the funding of Theater J by the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
