Theatre Ariel presents the 10X8: FOOD, FAMILY, and PHILOSOPHY festival on Saturday, May 17th and Sunday, May 18th. This SOLD OUT event will feature plays by Lisa Brenner, Jacqueline Goldfinger, Jacqueline E. Lawton, Hank Kimmel, Sam Geller, Louis Greenstein, Ken Kaissar, and Rich Orloff.
Directed by Theatre Ariel's Artistic Director, the talented ensemble cast includes Lauren Berman, Ed Gavin, Alana Gerlach, Danielle Lenee, Juliana Messenger, and Miriam White.
Theatre Ariel’s newest ten minute play fest invites 8 playwrights to create dramas and comedies celebrating the Jewish experience through the lens of “food, family, and philosophy”. The theme was inspired by a Yiddish joke: “A young yeshiva student is meeting his intended for the first time. Shy, frightened, and tongued-tied, he remembers the Rebbe’s advise – you can always talk about food, family, and philosophy!”
