Produced in partnership with Congregation Beth Elohim
The Gett is a tale of the dirty and the divine, drawing on everything from the Torah to bad sex. It’s about the tacky menorah in your lobby behind the Christmas tree and the lover whose phone number you can’t forget and that voicemail from your mother you haven't listened to yet. As sacred as it is profane, this is a play about recreating a self. Herself.
November 9 - December 11, 2022
“For me, it started with the first verses of the Torah--the ancient stuff of light and words and oceans and skies--and everything followed for me as a woman and a Jew. What creation and recreation looks like today... the struggles for power and faith, moving in and out of love and through magic and ritual.”
