Tickets are now on sale for Bet Ha’am’s spring gala event!

 

We have lined up 3 outstanding writers to share their work with us over Zoom. Those of you who attended last year remember this fantastic fundraiser, and this year we have made it even better by adding a dramatic component with these three plays:

Tikkun Olam, by Brent Askari

A humorous and insightful examination of how one congregant’s crisis of faith results in some unexpected advice from his rabbi.

 

June 20/20 reVision(s): A Fire Diary, by Bess Welden 

A brand new, totally untested solo performance text-in-progress of truer than true tales about whiteness, Jewishness, and what she inherited from her father.

 

The Male Gaze, by Monica Wood

A woman feeling overlooked by her husband asks an older neighbor for advice. Be careful—very careful—what you wish for.

 

David Bass-Clark will return as Master of Ceremonies.

Q&As with the playwrights will be moderated by Andrew Kosak.
