My Name is Asher Lev

Arts & Culture

A rehearsed reading of 'My Name is Asher Lev'. A play by Aaron Posner, based on the novel by Chaim Potok, directed by Alexander Lass.

“I am a traitor, a self-hater, a blasphemer, an inflictor of shame upon my family, my friends, my people…”

Asher Lev is the artist who pained the sensational ‘Brooklyn Crucifixion’. Into it he poured all the anguish and torment a Jew can feel when torn between the faith of his forebears and the calling of his art. Here Asher plunges back into his childhood and recounts the story of love and conflict which dragged him to this crossroads. This reading marks the first ever UK performance of Aaron Posner’s powerful play, thrillingly adapted from Chaim Potok’s iconic novel.

CAST
