British playwright Lionel Goldstein (Halpern and Johnson) creates another riveting two-character masterpiece, “Mandate Memories,” perfect for North Coast Rep’s intimate stage. In this taut and witty drama filled with revelations of love affairs, dreams and the founding of Israel, layers are peeled away to reveal the deep hearts of two caring and compassionate human beings. There is a mysterious connection between Gustav Frolich, an 80-year-old Holocaust survivor and Jane Stirling, a 62-year-old widow as their debate reveals how different and yet how similar they are. Be among the first to see this world premiere. The North Coast rep production will be directed by David Ellenstein.
