Theatre is a mirror – revealing, exposing and drawing us in for a closer look at who we are. What is Jewish Theatre? What makes a play Jewish? What is the American Jewish theatre? What does American Jewish theatre say about our lives? In this hands-on interactive class, we will discover the answers to these questions through reading and discussing short works by contemporary American Jewish playwrights.
