IN EVERY GENERATION by Ali Viterbi

One family. One holiday. Four millennia. The Levi-Katz family celebrates Passover again and again (and again and again) and while times, location, and languages change, traditions stay the same. Over matzah ball soup and (vegan) brisket, the close-knit clan contends with questions of race, religion, and inter-generational trauma. The present echoes the past—and the past the present—as the family repeatedly reenacts the exodus from Egypt, each time asking themselves: must we define ourselves through trauma? Will we ever be free? And why is this night different from all other nights?

SPECIAL COMMUNITY DRAG SHOW, Sunday, September 8th @ 1:00 pm

Raphaela, a young Modern Orthodox Jew, is outed and suddenly sent to Israel to heal, but the Holy Land has its own surprises – a new friend, a new community, and Video Pub, the only drag club in Jerusalem.

“Whether you’re Arab, Israeli, Gay, Straight, American, or chunky funky spunky space alien… people say putting on a wig and singing to Rihanna isn’t going to solve anything, but honey, I know drag’s gonna save the world.”

ALL SHOWS AT Theater at the 14th Street Y
