The Chosen
On Who We Must Become, From Chaim Potok.
Barrymore Award, Outstanding New Play

By Aaron Posner & Chaim Potok. Adapted from the novel by Chaim Potok.

It was an honor to work closely with Chaim Potok on bringing his remarkable book to the stage. His story of family conflict, the need for tolerance and understanding, and the complicated ways that love can be expressed is one of the most important stories I’ve ever had the opportunity to tell. It was also my first adaptation to travel beyond the Arden. It has now had over 100 productions, nationally and internationally...
“...both an affecting coming-of-age tale and a fascinating rumination on the essence of family and wisdom... What could be more irresistible?”
