Play | Yours Unfaithfully: 'un-romantic comedy' (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


An "un-romantic comedy" about the price of free love, Yours Unfaithfully is an insightful, intelligent and exceptionally intimate peek behind the closed doors of an open marriage. Stephen and Anne, blissfully happy for eight years, are committed to living up to their ideals. When Stephen, a writer who isn't writing, begins to sink into a funk of unproductive moodiness, Anne encourages him to seek out a fresh spark. Can their marriage survive uncompromising generosity, sacrifice and love? More than the story of an unconventional couple, the play is about what happens when our ideals clash with our emotions. Written by Miles Malleson Directed by Jonathan Bank The event is streaming until May 16th.

Museums | Jewish History: Centuries of Art (in-person)


One of the largest collections of art and Jewish culture in the world, it focuses both on artifacts of Jewish history and on modern and contemporary art. Works in the collection are presented as distinctive creative expressions and as bearers of the stories of those who made, owned, used, preserved, and sometimes transformed them. The exhibition speaks of the vast range of Jewish experiences across the globe and over time, made tangible through artistic expression. It is both a mirror of Jewish identities and an inspiration for the formation of new ones.

Discussion | Oscar-Nominated Editor of The Trial of Chicago 7 (2021) in Conversation (virtual)


This timely look at the aftermath of the antiwar protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention is nominated for 6 Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing. Join the film's editor Alan Baumgarten in conversation. It's 1968 and the United States is in turmoil. Martin Luther King Jr. is gunned down by an assassin in Memphis, Robert F. Kennedy is shot and killed in Los Angeles. The Vietnam War is at its height with over 30,000 American casualties and 1,000 more U.S. troops killed each month. In August, scores of antiwar protestors gather outside the Democratic National Convention in Chicago and are tear gassed and beaten by police and the National Guard. The following year, the organizers of the protest - including Abbie Hoffman (Sacha Baron Cohen), Jerry Rubin (Jeremy Strong), Tom Hayden (Eddie Redmayne) and Bobby Seale (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) - were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.
