In a performance that celebrates the power of kinship through thick and thin, a Jewish family in New York in the 1930s experiences ups and downs as they encounter everything from financial concerns to the mounting uncertainty surrounding their loved-ones overseas.
Directed by Tony Catanese.
Performance dates: October 21 – November 6, 2011.
Rehearsal dates: Rehearsals will start the beginning of August and will run three nights a week for the first two weeks, then move to 4 and possibly 5 rehearsals per week thereafter.
