OY! is a collection of eight 10-minute comedies, each illustrating the meaning of a Yiddish word -- with story lines including the untold stories of Eve and Adam, Einstein's demanding mother, the divorce trial of God and the human, the use of unkosher food as an aphrodisiac, and three men in a sauna who communicate using only the word "oy." Appealing to audiences of all faiths and all backgrounds, OY! is a tribute to the absurdity and comedy of the condition universal to everyone: that of being human. Learn More

I'm a huge fan of playwright Adam Rapp. His plays in general, including this one, are not for everyone. When you enter the theater there is a sign warning about nudity and gunshots. And indeed there is a lot of full nudity, both female and male.
The play is very well-written, as all his work is. There's been a terrible war; men are being tortured - women being entered in a database. The action onstage focuses on a woman whose husband is missing - she is holed up trying to survive.
The acting is excellent and many of the themes are disturbing. It's a beautiful work about an ugly reality. Recommended for those who don't like things tied in neat packages - there's a lot of room for interpretation and debate.
