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.

Years after her twin brother, Becket’s disappearance, Emily Diamond is still haunted by dreams of him. Emily’s journey to self-awareness as an individual, separate from her twin and from the rest of the Diamonds is at the heart of this evocative memory play. L.A. critics called the play “funny and poignant,” “ravaging” and  “storytelling brilliance.”

WENDY GRAF’S other produced works include: All American Girl; Closely Related Keys;  the GLAAD Award-winning No Word in Guyanese for Me; Behind the Gates; Dorothy Silver New Play Contest Finalist, Leipzig; The Book of Esther; and Lessons, staged by the late, esteemed director, Gordon Davidson. Her newest title is Unemployed Elephants – A Love Story. She will lead audience discussion after both performances, with Lester Shane sharing the stage on July 9th.

ADMISSION IS FREE. DONATIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED
