Lawrence Wright’s Camp David Eyeing Broadway Bow
June 25th, 2015 | By Broadway.com Staff
Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright’s latest play Camp David is aiming to arrive on Broadway in the 2016/2017 season. Prior to its Great White Way run, Camp David, directed by Molly Smith, will play The Old Globe in San Diego from May 13, 2016 through June 19.
The play follows the 1978 Camp David conference, when President Carter persuaded Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian president Anwar Sadat to sign the first peace treaty in the modern Middle East, one which endures to this day.
Camp David had its world premiere at Washington D.C.’s Arena Stage in 2014, starring Hallie Foote, Khaled Nabawy, Ron Rifkin and Richard Thomas.
