"Why haven't I met your family yet?"
In a personal narrative, "My
Shiksa Boyfriend" explores dating, religion, and identity.
This is the second workshop performance of a solow show written and
performed by Arielle Beth Klein. Workshopped and rehearsed with
dramaturg and director, Sidse Ploug Soerensen.
The Whore From Ohio
The Old Girl will be back in November. Along with Oybiter and Charlie Omar jr. A comment from a playwright who saw our recent production:
"I just wanted to tell you that I was astonished by the The Whore of Ohio
and its performance last night.
The play is a masterwork. I have not had so deep a response to any work I have seen in the theater for many years.
The play clarified much in my own life I had struggled with. Its coarse subject and
searing compassion articulated in Yiddish highlighted to me the intimate God-inflected language that is peculiar to Yiddish...
It made me feel rootless and homeless because it spoke to me in a “language” I felt to be thoroughly mine... It made me see the gulf between me and my native language, English.
...as a writer it made me feel that when writing in English, something will always be missing."
Tickets will be on sale very soon.
