Nathan Englander’s new play, The Twenty Seventh Man, is coming to The Public Theater next month. The play, set in a 1950s Soviet prison, centers around a group of writers who are the giants of Yiddish literature, and now face jail walls. When a twenty-seventh writer is added, who hasn’t been published and seems to be the odd one out, the group wrestles with the mysteries of party loyalty and politics, culture and identity, and with what it means to write in troubled times.
Next week, Englander and the director of the play, Barry Edelstein, will be coming to the Dorothy & Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers with moderator Alexis Soloski. Make sure to reserve your free tickets to the conversation here…
