About the Show
Five generations of a French Jewish family are threatened by displacement in this world premiere.
Joshua Harmon's stunning new play begins in 1944 with a Jewish couple living in France and anxiously awaiting updates about their missing family. Several decades, and five generations, later the couple's descendants continue to face the same question as their ancestors: "Are we safe?" Prayer for the French Republic takes a sweeping look at history, home, and the legacy of xenophobic hatred. TONY Award-winning director David Cromer (The Band’s Visit) spearheads the world premiere production.
