  Truman and the Birth of Israel at The Greenhouse Theater Center

Truman and the Birth of Israel

The Greenhouse Theater Center
2257 N Lincoln Avenue Chicago

The man from Independence who ascended to the presidency after the death of FDR, Harry S. Truman is remembered as a feisty politician who would've filled his Twitter feed with famous remarks like, "You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog." But despite the foreign-policy turmoil he faced at the end of WWII and the beginning of the Cold War, this former Missouri farmer, WWI veteran and Democratic Senator risked it all to support the creation of an independent state of Israel. This Forum Productions play at Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center explores how "Give 'em Hell" Harry altered the future of the Jewish people forever.

Chicago Theatre Review - Recommended

"...David Cohenís historical play is stuffed with more information than many audiences will be able to absorb. Depending upon the individual theatergoerís age, background and interest in history, this production may simply overwhelm. But patrons who enjoy a play that enlightens and piques their interest to learn more will greatly enjoy this production. The powerful payoff that occurs in the playís the final scene is certainly worth the journey."
