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.

Fifty years after her liberation from the Nazi death camps, Bracha Weissman still suffers the aftermath of her old trauma. When she allows Ann Meshenberg, the child of other survivors, into her home to take testimony for an archival videotaping project, Bracha considers the legacy she has left her own daughter. The Interview is a story about mothers, daughters and memory, about forgiving and being forgiven. Among the play’s honors: an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award and winner of three national new play contests. It has been produced on more than three dozen stages around the U.S. in the past 20 years. The event is part of the Holocaust Theater International Initiative’s “Remembrance Readings,” organized by the National Jewish Theatre Foundation. It is supported, in part, by a gift from the late Anne DesRosiers.

ADMISSION IS FREE. Donations are appreciated
