After losing his son in the Israel-Lebanon conflict of 2006, David Grossman wrote his stunning masterpiece, Falling Out of Time. Now, Derek Goldman (Our Class) adapts this haunting tale of loss, solace, and hope into a world premiere stage production. In this incandescent fable, a grief-stricken man takes leave of his bewildered wife to embark on a beautiful and poetic journey that will change him forever. This astonishing and one-of-a-kind theatrical experience promises to be the season’s most moving event.
“A richly emotional, mystical and philosophical tapestry… [in the] tradition of art that pushes back against catastrophe.” – The Jewish Daily Forward
“[Grossman is] the greatest Israeli writer of his generation. . . . Talmudic, polyphonic, yearning, [Falling Out of Time] comes from a place of pain and darkness and is acutely moving.” — The Daily Telegraph (London)
