Prime Stage Theatre presents The Devil's Arithmetic

Saturday, September 28, 2013  
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Prime Stage Theatre presents a staged reading of scenes from the world premiere adaptation of The Devil's Arithmetic, based on the Newbery Award-winning book by Jane Yolen. In the story, Hannah, a modern-day teenager, experiences the trials and tragedies of the Holocaust firsthand when she travels back in time to a Polish village in 1942.

Each season, Prime Stage Theatre produces three adaptations of literature, drawn from middle and high school reading lists, intended to stimulate the imaginations, intellects and emotions of audiences who seek compelling theatrical entertainment. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Join us after the performance for a Q&A with the cast and artistic director, and be sure to check out their upcoming season at
