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.

All parents think their children are great. Alan Zuckerman just happens to think his three-year-old son, David, is the Messiah. Alan and his wife, Laura, visit their rabbi to discuss David’s possible divinity. Thirty years later, everyone older and wiser, it appears that Dad might have been onto something.

STEPHEN KAPLAN’s playwriting honors include: the New American Comedy Showcase Award (The Book of Daniel); semi-finalist for PlayPenn, Ashland New Play Festival, MTWorks’ Newborn Festival (A Real Boy); and New Jersey Playwrights Contest, DezArt Performs’ Reading Series, Across the Generations New Jewish Play Festival, and finalist for the Woodward-Newman Drama Award (Exquisite Potential.) He is New Jersey’s Regional Representative to the Dramatists Guild. Stephen will attend the Sunday performance and lead a talkback.
