Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description A Neo-Nazi group plans a demonstration in one of the largest Holocaust survivor populations in America: Skokie, Illinois. Morry Kaplan a failed businessman, is outraged by this affront to the memory of the Holocaust. At the same time his daughter Debbie is falling in love with someone who is not Jewish. This drama brings the family to realizations about the value of memory, culture and identity and its survival for generations to come. Receiving rave reviews during its initial run at the Chicago Dramatists in 2010 including a three-star review from Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune, this 2013 production of The Invasion of Skokie includes: Neal Grofman as Morry Kaplan; Sarah August Hecht as Debbie, Morry's daughter; Justine Serino as Sylvia, his wife; Josh Nordmark as Charlie, Debbie's boyfriend; and Michael Denini as the neighbor Howie. Rachel Edwards Harvith directs. The theatre at the Mayer Kaplan JCC is located on 5050 Church St., Skokie IL. 60077 just west of Gross Point Road. The theater is wheelchair accessible. Free parking in the Mayer Kaplan parking lot is available. Public transit: the Skokie Swift at Dempster and then the #97 bus toward Old Orchard to Church St.
