"The Leah/Rachel Play" (Seattle 2017)

AFMDA - Join Us and Help Save Lives in Israel

(May 1-16) — "The Leah/Rachel Play": A historian unearths an ancient papyrus about sisterhood and struggles with what it means for a man to have made this discovery that reveals so much about female identity. And as a new father to twin baby girls, he’s looking for advice anywhere he can get it. Created in collaboration with Emmy-award winning filmmaker Ilana Trachtman ("Praying with Lior").

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.
