It’s a staged reading, but what a cast – Jeremiah Kissel, Karen MacDonald, Will Lyman, and Johnny Lee Davenport. Israeli Stage celebrates its second birthday at 7 p.m. Sunday night with Gilad Evron’s “Ulysses on Bottles,” at the Goethe Institut, directed by Guy Ben-Aharon.

Here’s how Israeli Stage describes the play:

Ulysses, a teacher of literature, who favors Russian literature, builds a raft made of bottles to sail to Gaza, deliver books, and teach literature to its people … This is a poignant and critical play about people living in separate and different realities where life of privilege is pitted against life of deprivation.

Tickets: $10 | $5 students at
