Monday, April 15, 2024
University Center Theater
Please join us for a reading of The Judge and His Daughter, a play-in-progress written by Ruth Apolonia Zamoyta and directed by Cheryl Katz. The reading will be followed by a talk-back with the author. There will be a reception afterward.
A fictional conservative Supreme Court justice whisks away his environmental-radicalist 16-year-old daughter to a camp in the Adirondacks when she is suspended for destroying her school’s air conditioning system with a sledgehammer. While the daughter suffers the consequences of her actions, the two learn how to get along: fishing, hunting, trapping and searching for an elusive moose. But, when the judge reveals his ulterior motive for bringing his daughter to the camp, he is faced with the hardest decision of his life: does he sacrifice his ideological beliefs for the sake of his love for his family?
This play contains references to sensitive subject matter.
