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
Reviews & Ratings
Coming off the critically acclaimed, six-month run of the one-person, world premiere hit Caterpillar Soup and 16-week engagement of another one-person show Capture Now, Ruskin is staging a hugely popular comedy that has received rave reviews from The New Yorker, Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine and more.
“We are so proud of the amazing success of our touching and very personal one-person shows, and now we are eager to move back into the realm of a larger-cast, high-energy play,” said Mike Myers, director of Beyond Therapy and Ruskin’s managing director.Beyond Therapy
tells the story of Bruce and Prudence, both in psychotherapy and both neurotic, and their search for love. The play mines big laughs from such subjects as the cult of therapy, dating, pop culture, casual sex, and relationship commitment.
Although frequently done, the play has not been seen on a local professional stage for several seasons.
