77 W. Washington St., Chicago
 
SRTPPangsJoin Silk Road Theatre Project and MaiChef Cuisine for a Mediterranean inspired reception. Then stay for Motti Lerners breathtakingly powerful play, followed by what promises to be a lively a post-show discussion. Set in 2012 amidst the signing of a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians, Motti Lerner’s Pangs of the Messiah is an apocalyptic yet fiercely humane drama about eight West Bank Jewish settlers pitted against an Israel they feel betrayed by. The play focuses on a religious family that finds itself torn between fighting to stay in their settlement and obeying their government’s decision to dismantle it. Left hanging in the balance is the legacy of their beliefs. 
Event begins at 6:30 p.m.
Show begins at 7:30 p.m.
