The Book of Job Project presents dramatic readings by acclaimed actors of The Book of Job as a catalyst for powerful, guided conversations about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic upon individuals, families, and communities. The Book of Job is an ancient Hebrew poem that timelessly explores how humans behave when faced with disaster, pestilence and injustice.

This special event is a collaboration with Exodus Transitional Community aimed at engaging a socially distanced audience of adults and youth affected by the justice system. We are proud to open this innovative program to the public, to bear witness to the insights of the Exodus Transitional Community.

Featuring performances by Jeffrey Wright, Frankie Faison, Kimberly Herbert, David Strathairn, David Zayas, and Public Advocate Jumaane Williams.

Translated by Stephen Mitchell. Directed, Adapted, and Facilitated by Bryan Doerries. Co-facilitated by Dominic Dupont.
