About The Ally

Tony Award-winning playwright Itamar Moses (The Band’s Visit) returns to The Public with the world premiere of THE ALLY, a fierce drama that gives voice to some of the most contentious and important questions of our time.

When college professor Asaf (Josh Radnor) is asked by a student to sign a social justice manifesto, what seems at first like a simple choice instead embroils him in an increasingly complex web of conflicting agendas that challenge his allegiances as a progressive, a husband, an artist, an academic, an American, an atheist, and a Jew. With tensions at an all-time high, Asaf is forced to confront the age-old question: “If I am only for myself, what am I?”

Directed by Drama Desk Award winner Lila Neugebauer (The Wolves), THE ALLY is a passionate, provocative, and unflinching new play about the vanishing line between the personal and the political.

Intelligent, Intense, Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if Set on a college campus, the passionate play deals w complex current conflicts:Af-Ams vs Police,Israel vs Palestine.It requires attention&*

Don’t see it if Unwilling to compromise, though more dialogue on the subject is needed both in the theater & in the media.

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Talky, Absorbing

See it if you'd like in-depth discussn of Israel-Palestine conflict. Strg cast, esply Radnor. I was never bored, altho little action. "Complicated."

Don’t see it if the subj matter repels you. Not an exhaustive study (couldn't be), so some impt points left out. Well directed. Inspired double-cast roles.
