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

I liked it. It's a sweet and touching magical-realism story - the kind of play (or story in any format) that is rarely made nowadays. However, it did feel as though this play could benefit from more work. The first act was a bit slow and choppy - but the second act is considerably better (and received a far stronger response from the audience). And one of the central devices used throughout the play (characters who regularly switched ages) was not well integrated.

Poorly written but well acted by the older actors and average acting by the younger actors. Too many canned speeches by the writer which gives the play a totally artificial feeling. Don't believe the 5.0 reviews as they must be friends.
