From award-winning playwright and screenwriter Mark Troy, this collection of five short plays, all theatrical in size and presentation, and all center around Jewish family life, customs, holidays, traditions, and even some “tsuris.” These pieces represent a small part of Troy’s work for the theater, but demonstrate a clear personal view of the human condition in the Jewish family from different age groups; parents, children, siblings, and married couples. There is something for every member of the family and for those who just happen to know a Jewish person somewhere.
