Ricochet community – excited to be posting for the first time. Writing to tell you all about a project I’ve been working on recently. I’m putting on a staged reading of my first play, Lev of Leningrad, to raise funds for Ukrainian relief. If you’re in the Philadelphia area and want to see the show you can find tickets here.
Lev is a comedy-drama about (my close friends) Lev and Marina Furman, prominent Jewish refusniks in Leningrad in the 1980s. The Furmans were denied the right to emigrate from the former Soviet Union, which at the time included Kyiv where Marina was born. Last year, the play received a staged reading at the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, PA, as a part of The Fulton’s inaugural ‘Stories of Diversity’ festival.
A bit about me?
I’m Noah Schoenberg, a new playwright/screenwriter.
My academic background is in applied mathematics and neuroscience. But (as my professors would attest) I can assure you that I was ill-suited for either of those disciplines.
After college, I worked for five years as an analyst on the commodities desk at a trading firm.
During that employment, I wrote Lev. I’ve since completed drafts of two other plays and my first short film script.
If you want to hear more about the project, chat about film/theatre, or just say hi – drop me line at email@example.com. I’d be delighted to hear from any Ricochet member. I’m also planning to attend the meetup this weekend at City Vineyard in Manhattan – hope to meet some of you in person.Published in
