Staged reading performance of Holocaust survivor’s play ‘Chained’ is coming to Park City

PARK CITY, Utah — The staged reading of “Chained” is being performed in Park City.

“Sonia Levitin’s play, CHAINED, offers a compassionate and clear-eyed perspective on a challenging issue. She delves deep into the human core of her characters, refusing to take sides.” –
Eric Kaplan, Emmy-winning television writer and executive producer of “Young Sheldon” and “The Big Bang Theory”

Beginning on June 15, click here for the Eventbrite TICKET SALES site, then type in “Chained.” Tickets are $36 each.

The production location in Park City will be provided upon ticket purchase. The Utah premiere play is at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 18. 

Holocaust survivor Sonia Levitin’s play is about what can happen when Jewish divorce law gives husbands the power to refuse to let their wives go. Every character brings evasions and secrets into this conflict as each struggles for self-knowledge, forgiveness, and, finally, love.

“Divorce is difficult,” the play’s poster reads. “But even more traumatic in the Orthodox Jewish community, as both partners struggle with hidden agendas and secret lives.”

Levitin’s showcase of this, her latest play, will be a staged reading by the Los Angeles cast. The play was produced on February 29 at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. Levitin is an award-winning author, playwright, and lyricist. 

“When I read the script,” founding executive director of the Park City Arts Council Joanna Charnes told TownLift, “I knew I wanted to help bring it to Park City for the benefit of us all to see.”
