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.
