A seder might be all about order, but you wouldn’t know it when the Stein family gets together for Passover. Maybe the chaos stems from no one knowing why they’ve suddenly been summoned home for the holiday. Or maybe it’s because no one in the house has done anything even remotely religious for decades. In between group yoga, phone calls with the Ellen show, and plague finger puppets, the Stein family will have to decide if they can come together as a family – or if this age-old tradition will finally tear them apart.


From David Ives, the master comic mind behind the hit play All In The Timing, comes this witty, romantic story of a couple looking to take the next step. At least, Ruth is looking. Jack is happy dancing in place. Ruth wants to get married and raise a Jewish family. Jack rejects the concept of marriage and is a devout atheist/lapsed-Catholic.
Can they reconcile their differences? Can love mature?
And why won’t that phone stop ringing…? 

“A genuine achievement… the dialogue is crunchy and saucy [as] these lovers are buffeted about circularly, hilariously, and scarily.” - New York Magazine

'22 - 23 season announcement.png

An Israeli violinist living along a picturesque canal in Amsterdam receives an unpaid bill from 1944. An unpaid gas bill. Racing through issues of identity and alienness, legacy and peoplehood, this thrilling and imaginatively-told mystery reconstructs the possible, devastating origins of the bill – and explores how the past always comes due. Maya Arad Yasur is one of Israel’s hottest playwrights – come see why in this Philadelphia premiere!

In a world where family is everything, Yehudis and her husband struggle to have a baby. That struggle will send Yehudis down a remarkable journey full of courage and transformation as she reaches beyond her Hasidic community to find a child in need of a mother. A story as timeless as Sarah’s, as potent as the rescue of Moses from the Nile.
