Martin M. Zuckerman's A Perfect Peace, adapted from the Amos Oz novel as translated by Hillel Halkin, will play an Off-Broadway run at Theatre at St. Clements beginning February 28. Opening night is March 11, and the 12-week limited engagement will continue through May 18.

Leading the cast will be Ephie Aardema (Funny Girl), along with Iris Bahr (Dai), Yair Ben-Dor (Prayer for the French Republic), Donald Corren (Torch Song Trilogy), Talia Sulla (Prayer for the French Republic, Huntington Theatre), and Max Wolkowitz (Indecent). Rounding out the company as understudies will be Max Katz (The Thursday Night Club) and Rebecca Salzhauer (Titus Andronicus). Casting is by Stephanie Klapper Casting.

Set in the 1960s, the play follows Yoni, an Israeli war hero who's struggling to adapt to life away from the battlefield.

The production will feature scenic design by Zoë Hurwitz, costume design by Amy Sutton, lighting design by Nic Vincent, sound design by Frederick Kennedy, and projection design by Yana Biryükova. Kelly Hardy is production stage manager, and Julie Gottfried is assistant stage manager.

"A Perfect Peace is about powerful interpersonal relationships and the limitations and expectations we sometimes place on ourselves and others," says Zuckerman in a statement. "Though the play deals with a specific married couple and their goals and dreams, their struggles are universal because they each want more than they are getting in their relationship. I wrote this play because I feel it is important for younger people to get a sense of what life was like in Israel in its salad days; A Perfect Peace provides such a glimpse."
