Why See Paris Time?
A world premiere play that examines our political beliefs
A world premiere production that is incredibly timely in today's global political upheaval, this new play by Chicago-based playwright Steven Paterson tackles the evil of anti-Semitism in France. With headlines now under global scrutiny thanks to social media, we have become aware of what other news organizations are reporting in their respective countries.
Paris Time explores the fractured marriage of an American couple living in Paris; Charles is a high-powered business executive, whilst his wife becomes involved with activism, namely protecting a Jewish Frenchwoman. The two come to odds when her political activities threaten his position at the company. Conversely, if he tries to rein Deborah's actions in, he puts his marriage on the line. A relevant and gripping examination of how politics and morality come into our living rooms and affect our personal lives, and force us to confront reality.
A two-time recipient of the Julie Harris Playwrights Award and winner of the Dorothy Silver Playwriting Competition, Paterson's previous works include Affluence and The Invasion Of Skokie.
