My Rabbi Coming To The Firehall Arts Centre October 7th – 18th

3 Oct

My_RabbiFirehallAfter a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Vancouver’s Kayvon Kelly and Saskatoon’s Joel Bernbaum bring their original play My Rabbi to the Firehall Arts Centre starting October 7th.  The story takes you on the spiritual journey of two boy hood friends, one Jewish and the other Muslim, and delves into the lines between faith and friendship with heartfelt comedic drama.  The story is inspired by their real-life friendship and gives a uniquely personal and Canadian perspective on complex issues around the clash of Judaism and Islam. Co-creator Kayvon Kelly says the play is about “…  the connection between two boyhood friends, but at its heart it is about Canadian identity and how that relates to the battle between old world politics and religious boundaries.” The play begins Tuesday, October 7th at the Firehall Arts Centre, 280 East Cordova Street. To purchase tickets visit Firehall Arts Centre.  Note for those on a budget, the show on Wednesday, October 15th at 1:00 pm is Pay What You Can.
