AN IDENTITY CRISIS OF COMEDIC PROPORTIONS

When Isaac Adams, a second-generation American, learns of plans for a Nazi group to stage a demonstration in Skokie, Illinois, he wonders what, if anything, his involvement should be. Determined to find the truth, Isaac goes on a quest to find answers about his heritage, his mother, and himself. Isaac questions a mixture of Jewish folk in his search - including his mother. Any seriousness is punctured with pop culture vignettes, recast with Jewish characters.

Directed by Moira Blumenthal, a champion of Jewish theatre.
