Event Details

Description

Jerry Silver is a divorced rabbi in a Brooklyn Dodgers baseball cap searching to fill a personal void. Nia Thompson is a reserved African American gospel choir director desperate to lose weight. Their lives intersect when Nia signs up for an Overeaters' Anonymous group that Jerry is leading. A heartwarming relationship unfolds in this funny, poignant new play that takes a hard-hitting look at contemporary values, Jewish - African American relations, stereotypes, and spirituality. And in the end, Jerry and Nia discover that gospel music and classic Jewish melodies just might be the key to bridging the gap that exists between us all.
Starring: Lela Elam and Avi Hoffman
Directed by: Tara Weidenfeller
