Benefit for Temple Shalom

Feb 17 – Theater Squared Stage Reading at Temple Shalom

Theatre Squared Artistic Director Robert Ford will present a staged reading in February of his play “My Father’s War” at Temple Shalom in Fayetteville, starring Amy Herzberg.

The production will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, at the Synagogue, 699 N Sang Ave. It will be preceded at 6 with a reception and silent auction. Proceeds benefit the congregation.

My Father’s War is based on the true story of Private Art Herzberg, a Jewish kid from Chicago’s North Side who landed at Normandy on D-Day and fought through to the Battle of the Bulge. Herzberg survives one near-death experience after another — not to mention anti-Semitism in his own ranks — through luck, chutzpah, and brilliant comic timing.

Tickets are $30, of which $20 is a charitable donation, are available at Nightbird Books, by contacting, or from Gene Tweraser, 479-521-1453, Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door.
