Contemporary Theatre of Dallas will present Division Avenue, a funny, poignant and provocative play about faith, love and bicycles. Tradition is the life's blood of the Hasidic Jewish community in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. But that tradition can also be suffocating. This new play by Miki Bone explores the gap between identity and ideals and follows the story of Efraim, a widowed young Hasidic man who seeks out a new life/world beyond Williamsburg only to find himself caught-up by the new technology of cell phone tracking. The action of the play unfolds amidst a legal battle over the removal of bicycle pathways in Williamsburg, pitting the ultra-orthodox Hasidim against the yuppies and hipsters of NYC. As Efraim tries to help his parents confront the encroachment of the modern world on their religious sanctuary, he must conceal his own efforts to break free of tradition and seek a new life and a new love in the outside world.

The performance on Thursday, November 21 is pay-what-you-can.
