Because there are so many good plays and so little time, we’re doing a bunch of community readings of 2015 JPC contest finalists before next month’s Jewish Playwriting Contest in Burlington. We hope you can join us!
On March 15th, with support from the Rutland Jewish Center (RJC) Events Committee,Theatre Kavanah will present a full-length reading of Jessica Fleitman’s SHOW OF HANDS, a Jewish Plays Project Playwriting Contest 2015 Finalist.
Sunday, March 15 | 3:00 PM | Rutland Jewish Center | 96 Grove Street, Rutland
Free, with contribution of an appetizer. Donations accepted.
Discussion with actors following the reading.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
Sarah was born with two thumbs on each hand — a real-life chamsah. Will her musical gift lead her back to the father who abandoned her as a small child? The image of the chamsah, the mystical hand inherited by Jews from the Muslim world–forms an emotional backdrop to this fascinating familial tale.
Emily Coffin, Max Chlumecky, Isaiah Gilbert, Roy Cutler, Sandra Gartner, Tom McElhaney, Emily Lyons, Stephanie Gallas, and Wendi Stein
