A Jewish family's tension between identity and spirituality boils over in Robin Russin's comedic drama The Face in the Reeds. When Christina's family gathers for its annual dinner celebrating Passover, it sparks a heated debate that moves between the true meaning of the holiday and starkly existential topics such as the value of life and the shadow of death that symbolically "passes over" their house. The cumulative effect is a poignant, frequently funny rumination on freedom, family, forgiveness, and what we owe to our faith, our past and or tribe in spite of what we actually believe. Learn More
“The Mitchells” tells the story of a young man who is confronted with having to disclose to his ostensibly conservative parents that he is gay before he is outed on a national Diane Sawyer television special. The full-length play is based on Smith’s “Christmas with the Mitchells,” a one-act that was part of Playwrights 6’s “Christmastime is Queer,” staged in 2002 at the Celebration Theatre in Hollywood. The critically acclaimed one-act was a finalist in the 2003 GLAAD L.A. Outstanding Theatre Awards.
The full-length “Mitchells” was named a finalist in the 2005 New Play Contest at Theatre Conspiracy in Fort Myers, Fla. and a semi-finalist in the 2004 Ashland (Ore.) New Plays Festival.
“The Mitchells” is directed by Jonathan Levit, who also directed “Christmas with the Mitchells.” In the cast are Larrs Jackson, Morris Nash, Lisa Robert, Peter James Smith, Amy Tofte, Jamie Virostko and Greg Wolf.
