Zalmy lives a double life: by day, he’s the rebbe’s loyal foot soldier, driving a “Mitzvah Tank” through NYC with his best friend Shmuel. By night, he sneaks away from his Orthodox community to roller-skate, dance in discos and listen to rock and roll. When he befriends a zealous young man eager to be his student, the barrier between Zalmy’s two worlds starts to crack.

“Joelle’s comedy is easygoing and confident, and her people have soul.” - Washington Post

Hot-off-the-Press! In the late 1950s, a Jewish mob boss facing pressure from both the Feds and the underworld became friends with his doctor, a former Communist who had broken the Jewish quota at Penn Medical School and became one of the most respected cardiologists in New Jersey. Sixty years later, the doctor's grandson draws on the stories of this unlikely friendship and the teachings of Ethics of the Fathers for a one-person show exploring morality, legacy, and Jewish identity in America.

What does it mean to take someone into your home? Judaism collides on a former plantation in rural South Carolina where the woods have more ghosts than trees in a tale of buried secrets, mysterious guests, and the quest for identity. Can one overcome the downward pull of history and troubled upbringings to become good parents?
