In this compelling drama, a childhood survivor of the Holocaust, deeply traumatized by the slaughter of his family by Nazis, grows up to become the tyrannical head of a New York publishing company. Despite its sterling reputation for championing authors who are passionate about their work rather than publishing best-sellers, Geldhart Publishing is on the brink of folding, and is threatened to be taken over by his son. He is faced with a family business conflict, a tug of war between family, money and morals.
Featured actors in The Substance of Fire will be Robert Armstrong, Michael Crawford, Shari Kochman, Jay Dickerson and Cathie Elsbree.
The audience is invited to participate in a talkback about the play and its subject matter after the reading.
