Theatre Kavanah

Theatre Kavanah, a new performance group dedicated to work reflecting the Jewish experience, presents three encore performances in Middlebury, Stowe, and Burlington of their staged reading of “The Chosen” on March 7, 9, and 10.


Adapted from Chaim Potok’s novel by Aaron Posner and Chaim Potok, “The Chosen” immerses its audience in the lives of two boys, two fathers, and two distinct Jewish communities, “five blocks and a world apart.” Set against the backdrop of World War II, the revelation of the Holocaust, and the founding of the State of Israel, the play is at once heartbreaking and hopeful. Its themes of struggle, transformation, and, ultimately, understanding transcend time and circumstance.
