“How His Bride Came To Abraham” at Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey

“How His Bride Came To Abraham”
by Karen Sunde

Two young people, an Israeli Defense Forces Corporal and a Palestinian woman, are forced to spend an unforgettable evening together in a war zone. Without taking sides or casting blame, the play demonstrates that our basic instinct for life-affirming experiences can transcend hate. Playwright Sunde sees the work as a fairy tale, a tender love story set against a backdrop of the violent realities of the world where these young people meet. The first version of her script was read at Playwrights Theatre at a roundtable reading in March of 1992. The following September, a public staged reading introduced the work to local audiences. Sunde says that she had hoped that her play would be out-dated by now. But, it seems more relevant than ever.
