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."
