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.

Set four years after 9/11, Jericho introduces two strangers still paralyzed by the tragedy. One lost a young husband; the other escaped a burning tower. They meet at a Thanksgiving dinner, where the holiday is dampened by their sorrow and guilt.

Jericho mixes biting humor with the many other ways we cope with loss and regret. The play was honored with the 2011 Edgarton Foundation Play Award and by the National New Play Network.

New York-based JACK CANFORA is a playwright, actor, musician, and teacher of high school English. His other produced works include: Place Setting and Poetic License; and his web series The Small Thing was awarded a 2016 Webby Award for Best Writing.
