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

Brilliant production, I highly recommend it!
We chose this play for our Friday night date because it was based on a true story, it had a modern and timely theme (the dangers of online dating / chatting) and because I was familiar with the story. Having seen the movie version, I was curious to see it on stage.
I have to say I loved the whole production. The stage was simple but effective, the casting was very good and the actors were mostly great, and the story was presented in a way that kept our attention throughout the play. I loved the choice of using the screen to show their chat messages, as well as having the two Tommys alternate depending on Old Tommy's emotional state. The play drew us in and thoroughly entertained. While I knew what would happen next, my boyfriend did not, and he also didn't find the ending predictable. Great play!
