What: Never Ever Ever is a production of Israeli Stage, a Boston-based theater troupe whose mission is “Sharing the diversity and vitality of Israeli culture through theatre.” The play, written by Sivan Ben Yishai, promotes conversation about dyslexia and learning disabilities. This event is free and open to the public.

When: Monday, February 16, 2015 – 7:00 p.m.

Where: The Zachs Hillel House on the Trinity campus, 74 Vernon Street, Hartford

Background: Israeli Stage presents the English language premiere of Never Ever Ever, a monodrama by Sivan Ben Yishai, translated by Natalie Fainstein. This play, winner of four Assistej Awards in 2013, features actor Jordan Ahnquist and is directed by Guy Ben-Aharon. Following its premiere at the Goethe-Institut Boston, Never Ever Ever is touring various college, university, and high school campuses in Greater Boston and New England to promote conversation about dyslexia and learning disabilities.

Synopsis of Never Ever Ever: Yoni runs away from school, from home, from himself. He runs away the moment he’s confronted with the word dyslexic. In this moving one-man play, the audience has the opportunity to experience what it is like to feel like an outsider, feeling different, being differently-abled, yet, at the same time, whole.

Israeli Stage has been profiled in numerous publications, including Ha’aretz/The International Herald Tribune, The Boston Globe, The Improper Bostonian, and The Jewish Journal, for the unique work the theater troupe does to build cultural bridges between the United States and Israel.
