Engine presents comedy event May 6

Engine will present a performance of David Kaye’s award winning solo-play, “How I Brought Peace to the Middle East: A Tragicomedy,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 6 at Engine in downtown Biddeford. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and on Eventbrite: https://peace-to-the-middle-east. eventbrite.com.

Kaye tells the story of moving his small family to Israel for six months in 2012 to teach on a Fulbright Scholarship. With missiles flying and his wife and children kvetching, Kaye had high hopes of settling the turmoil overseas once and for all. This funny and touching one-man show will take the audience along on Kaye’s misadventures from New England to the Holy Land. The true story of a na├»ve Vermonter on a mission, the play reveals one man’s optimism put to the ultimate test. Kaye won a Spotlight on the Arts Award for best new play for the show, and performed the piece as an official selection at the prestigious United Solo Festival in New York City as well as the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine and at colleges and theaters all over New England.
