WEST HARTFORD – Playhouse on Park’s main stage season 13 opens with TWO JEWS WALK INTO A WAR by Seth Rozin… directed by David Hammond. The production will run from September 22 to October 10, 2021. The New York Times calls it “a clear call to continue no matter how difficult the times”, making it a timely production.
Ishaq and Zeblyan are the last remaining Jews in Afghanistan. They share the only remaining synagogue that was not destroyed by the Taliban. They share the mission of repopulating the Jewish community in Kabul. But they also hate each other. Can this strange Middle Eastern couple engage in an incredible leap of faith to keep the diaspora alive without killing each other? A modern vaudeville full of schtick, heartache and survival.
