The Art of Anger
a stage reading play
by Jim Waxenberg, Writer & Producer
and Patsy Parker, Director
Thursday, March 8 at 7:00 pm
Temple Solel
All are invited to attend this intriguing play which tells the story of three Jews who were killed on 9/11 and accidentally wind up at the pearly gates where they are put into the gates’ anger-management program. Through the metaphor of art, they argue, analyze, blame, and eventually come to a resolution regarding their deaths on that fateful day. RSVP to Alissa at
