Aggregate Theatre Company partners with Ridge Road Baptist Church and Jewish for Good to bring this timely play about creativity, calling, and community.

My Name Is Asher Lev by Aaron Posner follows the journey of a young Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic upbringing and his desperate need to fulfill his artistic promise. When his artistic genius threatens to destroy his relationship with his parents and community, young Asher realizes he must make a difficult choice between art and faith. This stirring adaptation of a modern classic presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of what it means to be an artist.
