BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH THEATRE


Two Jews Walk Into a War...
by Seth Rozin

“Ishaq and Zeblyan are the last remaining Jews in Afghanistan. They share the only remaining synagogue that has not been destroyed by the Taliban. They share a mission to repopulate the Jewish community in Kabul. But they also hate each other. Can this Middle Eastern odd couple commit to one incredible act of faith to keep the diaspora alive without killing one other?” (From Playscripts, Inc.)

Janet Stoneburner directs acclaimed actor/director/playwright Dick Reichman and the 2018 Press Pick for Best Actor Mark Stoneburner in Seth Rozin’s two-person dark comedy about contemporary Jewish diaspora, inspired by news stories of the early 2000s.

The Diary of Anne Frank
by Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett / adapted by Wendy Kesselman

In this powerful adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with honesty, wit, and determination. Newly discovered writings from Anne's diary, as well as survivor accounts, are interwoven to create a contemporary impassioned story of the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic. The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief.
