Reading of A Barren Man
A play by Michelle Rosenfarb with Lela Elam, Howard Elfman, Abdiel Gabriel, Rachel Keller and Andrew Wind

Directed by Avi Hoffman

A Barren Man is the story of a young Orthodox man living in Crown Heights who is tormented by his sexual identity, repressed urges, and inability to procreate with his spouse of two years. Desperately longing to save his marriage and preserve his faith, the young man seeks counsel outside Crown Heights. Set against the backdrop of the highs and lows of New York’s same-sex marriage legislation, A Barren Man conveys the dangers of self entrapment, the lengths one must go for personal freedom, and the desire to become complete.

The playwright, a recipient of the Emerging Artist Foster Fellowship and winner of the 17th Annual Florida Playwright Competition, will be present at the reading. In addition to numerous staged readings of her work, her play, The Gates of Choice, received a world premiere production at New Theatre and was nominated for a Carbonell Award for Best New Work. She currently resides in NYC and is in her final year of studies at the MFA Dramatic Writing Program at NYU.
