Biddeford, ME—Engine will present a performance of David Kaye’s award winning solo-play How I Brought Peace to the Middle East: A Tragicomedy on Saturday, May 6 at 7:30pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm. Tickets are $15+ fee online with credit card and $20 at the door, available on Eventbrite.
Kaye tells the story of moving his small family to Israel for six months in 2012 to teach on a Fulbright Scholarship. With missiles flying and his wife and children kvetching, Kaye had high hopes of settling the turmoil overseas once and for all. This funny and touching one-man show will take the audience along on Kaye’s misadventures from New England to the Holy Land. The true story of a naïve Vermonter on a mission, the play reveals one 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 as well as the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine and at colleges and theaters all over New England.
Kaye currently serves as chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of New Hampshire. He has worked throughout the U.S. as a professional actor and director for such companies as the Texas Shakespeare Festival, the Theater at Monmouth in Maine, the National Theatre of the Performing Arts in NYC, Boston Chamber Theatre, and Stages Repertory Theatre in Houston, TX.
How I Brought Peace to the Middle East, A Tragicomedy is presented by Engine, an artspace in downtown Biddeford.
