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.

Larry and Roberta, a well-meaning, well-to-do suburban couple, have rescued a Torah that survived the Holocaust and donated it to their synagogue. So why does the shul in the next town have one, too? G-d’s Honest Truth asks how far we will go to believe a story too good to be true. The play took first prize in the 2014 Jewish Plays Project international playwriting competition.
