INTERPLAY JEWISH THEATRE, founded in 2011 by Cleveland playwright Faye Sholiton, produces free staged readings of outstanding plays that view the contemporary world through a Jewish lens.

INTERPLAY is a community-generated effort to revive a century-old tradition, but with a contemporary flavor. Our professional actors and directors bring to life some of the most compelling drama – and raucous comedy – written by today's most gifted writers.

INTERPLAY runs entirely on donations. Patrons are invited to drop cash or checks in our fishbowl to “play it forward” and cover the cost of the next reading.

STILL STANDING: A Musical Survival Guide for Life’s Catastrophes

Written and performed by ANITA HOLLANDER

SATURDAY, NOV. 18, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Fairmount Temple, 23737 Fairmount Blvd., Beachwood, OH

New York-based actor/singer/songwriter ANITA HOLLANDER wrote her evening of original songs to chronicle a journey that began when she was a college student stricken with cancer. A recurrence when she was 26 led to the amputation of one leg, leaving her to perform for more than three decades on the other one. The New York Times review of STILL STANDING called her “provocative, funny, moving, communicative and beautifully polished [with] a wide rainbow of vocal colors that she uses with dramatic sensitivity as well as comic insights…. plus a charming presence that flavors everything she does.” She has performed the show off Broadway, at the White House, across America and around the world. She returns to her native Cleveland for this one-time event, with her sister Rachel signing for the hearing impaired.

A $10 donation is requested at the door, by cash or check. The event is underwritten, in part, by the Roy and Eunice Berko Fund at Interplay.
