How I Brought Peace to the Middle East: A Tragicomedy

Don’t miss this performance by David Kaye on April 21

This funny and touching one-man show will take the audience along on David Kaye’s many misadventures from New England to the Holy Land, as Kaye tells the story of moving his small family to Israel for six months in 2012 to teach on a Fulbright Scholarship. A self-proclaimed “naive Jew from Vermont,” Kaye had high hopes of settling the turmoil overseas once and for all. With rockets flying and his family kvetching, you will see the true story of a man’s optimism put to the ultimate test.

Kaye won a Spotlight on the Arts Award for best new play for the show, and performed the piece as an official selection at the prestigious United Solo Festival in New York City. 


Tickets are $10.00 for general admission and $8.00 for seniors and students. Admission is free for NECC students with student id. Tickets may be purchased at the door or MVArts.info
