Bad Jews – The Segal Centre for Performing Arts


T_1718_BadJews_slideshow.jpg

Following last year’s sold out run, Bad Jews is back at the Segal Centre starting November 8!

From the synopsis on the Segal’s website:

“When three cousins gather in a cramped Manhattan apartment to mourn the death of their beloved grandfather and fight over a precious family heirloom, they learn there is much more at stake than who gets what. Bursting with crisp, fast-paced dialogue, Bad Jews is an exciting exploration of faith, family and legacy that is as thought-provoking and poignant as it is viciously funny.”

Bad Jews runs from November 8 – 26 at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. For more information and for tickets please click here.

Late Company – d² productions

Is it possible to save a vulnerable child if their hurt is a secret? Late Company is a poignantly relevant contemporary story of forgiveness, culpability and reprisal. Set over the course of one evening, a family stricken by the loss of their son, who was bullied, at least in part, for his sexuality, attempts to build a bridge instead of placing blame, with mixed results. It’s cluttered, unsettling, funny, and before our eyes we witness grief move to healing.

Late Company  runs from November 8-12 and November 16-19 at the MainLine Theatre. For a detailed schedule and ticketing information please click here.

 

 The Queen of Chesed – Labyrinth Stage Productions


Pearl-Queen-of-Chesed-Vert.jpgAn original 80-minute dramatic comedy with no intermission. Written by Claudia Litvak Polachek and Pearl Rothenberg; directed by Ellen David.

Opening performance is at the Outremont Theatre on November 15, 2017. The play is loosely based on the life of Faigie Jacobson-a Chasidic woman, wife of a rabbi and mother of 9 children. “Chesed” is a Hebrew word meaning “acts of loving kindness”. Faigie, a dynamic, religious woman, opened her home to the needy in her Crown Heights home. Homeless, hungry and lonely people come for a meal and often stay indefinitely. The play has fictitious and true to life occurrences. It makes for some interesting dramatic and comedic interactions not only between the Jacobson family and their “guests” but also between the “guests” themselves.

The Queen of Chesed plays on November 15 & 16. For more information click here.
