Cherry Docs

Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay
https://www.equilibriumyogatherapy.com/neurosupport-groups

The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington’s 2019 season opens with Cherry Docs written by Canadian playwright David Gow. Directed by Liam Castellan, this drama follows a neo-Nazi Skinhead, played by Christopher Crider-Plonka, who is charged with murder in Toronto. Legal Aid assigns him a Jewish lawyer, played by JTB veteran Jonathan Golembiecki, and they are forced to collaborate on a defense. The Skinhead is pushed beyond his prejudice, while the lawyer is forced to examine the limits of his own liberal tolerance, and the demons that might be underneath it. Cherry Docs is a white-hot examination of hate and how hard it is to uproot from society.Performances are May 9, 11, 15, 16, & 18 at 7:30 pm & May 19 at 3:00pm at the Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased through the BCT Box Office at 114 E. Kirkwood Avenue (812-323-3020) and can be purchased online through bctboxoffice.org. There will be talkbacks directly following the performance on Thursday, May 9 and Thursday, May 16.For more information on the Jewish Theatre or this production, please visit jewishtheatrebloomington.com or find us on Facebook.
