Matinee Performance of Prayer for the French Republic and Optional Dinner at Kosher French Restaurant Le Marais (Sunday, February 11, 2:00 p.m.)

The New York Times calls Prayer for the French Republic “thought-provoking, heart-wrenching, and wickedly funny.” The Wall Street Journal raves, Prayer is “easily the finest play of the Broadway season.”

The Bryn Mawr Club of New York City has reserved a block of orchestra seats for a matinee of the acclaimed Prayer for the French Republic, a timely drama set in Paris in which five generations of a Jewish family grapple with the need to hold on to each other as they reel from historic persecutions that are shockingly familiar. Directed by Tony Award winner David Cromer, Joshua Harmon’s Prayer for the French Republic—winner of the 2022 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for best new off-Broadway play—is a crackling tour de force bringing to the stage one family’s need for connection amid growing anti-Semitic threats.

The show has a run time of three hours with two intermissions, so afterward we will be hungry for conversation and food! Let us know if you would like to join us at 6:00 p.m. for dinner at the kosher French restaurant Le Marais, a block from the theater.
