Vladimir Zelevinsky’s Manifest|Destiny next up for West End Players.

November 4th will be opening night for the second show of WEPG’s 106th season, Vladimir Zelevinsky’s Manifest|Destiny, directed by Steve Callahan.

In a year when America’s immigration history and policies have been front-and-center in political conversations, Zelevinsky’s play is especially timely and insightful. An ensemble cast playing dozens of roles offers poignant vignettes of the love and suffering, bravery and betrayal endured by four centuries-worth of immigrants fleeing the Old World for a chance to reinvent themselves in the new one.

Manifest|Destiny runs through November 13th. To get your tickets, just click here. For a look at the rest of WEPG’s 106h season, click here.
