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.

Samantha Marcus is a progressive rabbi who wants only to live a good and decent life. She and her three sisters – a successful developer, a struggling tennis pro, and an emerging spiritualist – have all been out of touch for years. Following the death of their father, a hard-drinking, hard-driving union activist, they are forced to come together to examine their shared legacy and divide his estate. Divided Among Themselves was named one of the top 10 plays in the New York-based 2013 Jewish New Play Festival.

HENRY W. (HANK) KIMMEL is a founding member and board president of Working Title Playwrights, an Atlanta-based theatre company dedicated to the development of playwrights and new plays. He has written dozens of plays, usually involving people’s obsession with status and money, and is approaching his goal of having his plays produced in all 50 states. Collections of his short plays have been produced by Jewish Theatre of the South (GA) and Center Stage Theatre (NY). When not resolving disputes on stage, he works as a mediator and tennis pro. He is a longtime member of the Dramatists Guild and is a graduate of Brown University and the Emory University School of Law.
