COMING THIS SPRING
Esther and Schmuli are newlyweds, navigating an arranged marriage in their Hasidic Jewish community. Sophie and Abe are young parents, mid-career authors and cultural Jews, restless in their marriage. As disagreements and deceptions slowly unravel both relationships, two disparate stories tie together in an artful examination of love and a search for happiness. This beautiful new play, by the author of Six Points Theater hits Actually and Photograph 51, explores complexities of relationships and the human condition.
