Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America

Join us for a landmark reading of The Plot Against America, Philip Roth’s timely and timeless masterwork, by some of the country’s finest actors.

This event—the first in a new series of literary performances—marks a fitting capstone to Roth’s long and rich relationship with 92Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center. The Plot Against America’s chilling resonances with our contemporary political climate—along with Roth’s deeply moving coming-of age-story—have made this remarkable novel a new classic.

The reading consists of three 90-minute acts with two intermissions. James Shapiro, the renowned Shakespeare scholar, assembled the abridgment. Arin Arbus will direct the reading.
