March 15 - April 10, 2016
When three young Jewish cousins are forced to bunk together in an apartment after the death of their grand-father, the result is a wickedly funny and ferocious brawl over religious tradition and family legacy. One of the hottest plays in recent years will have audiences laughing and talking long after the play is over.
The first time I read this play, I started out laughing in fits of giggles. Then I gasped in shock at some of the ideas. And in the end, I cried. This is one of the most honest perspectives you will get about being Jewish today. And in fact, this grieving family could be any family anywhere. Vital viewing.
