CHRONICLES OF SAMSON

Oct 18 & 19, 2017

Written by Ken Kaissar, Directed by Jesse Freedman


The Chronicles of Samson: Dangers of a Wounded Ego is the story of Samson and Timneet, deconstructed to dramatizes the rage and passion inherent in romance and how toxic masculinity and misogyny shape classic Bible narratives. Loosely adapted from a play by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato, an 18th century Italian Kabbalah master and poet.
