SHALOM & MOIRA BLUMENTHAL PRODUCTIONS present:

THE GOD OF ISAAC

BY JAMES SHERMAN | DIRECTED BY MOIRA BLUMENTHAL

AN IDENTITY CRISIS OF COMEDIC PROPORTIONS.

A  SEARCH FOR IDENTITY –  A SEARCH EVERYONE CAN IDENTIFY WITH

When Isaac Adams, a second generation American Jew, learns of plans for a Nazi group to stage a demonstration in Skokie, Illinois, he wonder what, if anything, his involvement should be.

Isaac goes on a quest to find answers.

He questions a mixture of Jewish folk – including his mother.   Along the way his journey is interrupted with pop-cultural vignettes, re-cast with Jewish characters.  The stars of Huckleberry Finn, The Wizard of Oz and On the Waterfront become members of the tribe.   It’s hilarious …but it drives his mother crazy.

Determined to find the truth, Isaac ultimately comes to terms with his heritage, his mother …. and himself.
