2022 - 2023 Season
Uncle Philip's Coat
by Matty Selman
October 22 – November 13, 2022
Matty, a middle-aged struggling actor, inherits an old, shabby coat from his deceased Uncle Philip Louis Zhivatovsky. As Matty learns about the history of this timeworn garment - saving a life in a Russian pogrom, displaying brassieres for sale on Coney Island's Boardwalk, and providing warmth for a hardscrabble life on the streets of New York - it becomes a treasured possession, living on as a coat for dreamers. This exquisitely written solo performance piece about inheritance, hope, and the human spirit is not to be missed.

This poignant and heartwarming comedy centers around Shmuel and Zalmy, two teenage Chabad-Lubavitcher young men. When they go into the secular community to engage non-observant Jews and do good deeds in their Mitzvah tank - “Mitzvahs on the Spot for People on the Go”- they meet Jonathan, a charismatic millennial Catholic man searching for meaning and purpose. As the twosome becomes a circle of three, friendships and love of Judaism are tested.
