The Eleventh Hour, a new play by Cathy Tempelsman - POSTPONED

Monday, May 8, 2017 - 6:00 PM
| Open to the Public | $35 per person | Advance registration required

This spring marks the centennial of America's entry into World War I. The Eleventh Hour combines fictional characters with real figures and words of the period to revisit the history from a new and poignant angle. It tells the true story of a deeply contentious investigation into the treatment of American servicemen, demanding the most difficult question: Are we ever allowed to say that a soldier died in vain?

This event, originally listed for May 8, has been postponed until Fall 2017. A new date will be announced soon, and registration will reopen at that time. With any questions, contact the Events Office at 212.288.6900 x230 or events@nysoclib.org.
