"The Jacob Play" (Austin 2016) — CLOSING NIGHT

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

(May 2-18) — A play that, quite literally, asks Jacob to wrestle with his role as brother, husband and man of God. "The Jacob Play" introduces a tag team tussle between Jacob & Rebecca vs. Esau and Isaac, a Battle Royale of Leah vs. Rachel vs. Jacob vs. Laban, and finally, the MAIN EVENT: Jacob vs. The Angel of the Lord. Get ready for a hard-hitting, smackdown, knockout wrestling extravaganza — it’s the event of the millennium!

Running as part of The In[heir]itance Project's The Genesis Plays, a national theater series created to put communities in conversation with stories from the Torah. This festival is a completion of that cycle — 5 plays made in different cities around the United States, performed in NYC for the very first time over 3 weeks at the 14th Street Y, all inspired by stories from 1 book. Conceived by Jon Adam Ross and directed by Chantal Pavageaux.

With generous support from The Covenant Foundation. In Association with Downtown Jewish Life.
