A Simple Piece of Cloth by Jeffrey D. J. Kallenberg, tells the story of a family coping with cultural assimilation and the death of the patriarch in a comic but truthful manner. The story deals with the cultural, moral, and philosophical issues surrounding a family feud over the rightful heir to the recently deceased patriarch’s "prayer shawl from the old country."
Mr. Kallenberg teaches the James Joyce Seminar at Columbia University and runs his own business in Shreveport, Louisiana. He has done writing and "script doctoring" for various television and film production companies and is well-known throughout the New York City professional theatre community.
Each open-reading will be followed by a discussion with the cast and author. Friday, September 7 and Saturday, September 8 at 7:30PM.
