When Sebastian Green returns from Birthright and announces he’s become an Orthodox Jew, his family must examine their own set of beliefs, how they feel about their son following a different path and how all this change will impact their household. The Shabbos List resonates with all families who struggle with children determined to find their own way.

GENEVIEVE
by Edward Musto

*AEA member

GENEVIEVE is inspired by a true story, the Gabrielle Russier ordeal, which shook France in the late 1960's. At the time of the student riots in Paris, a 30 year-old schoolteacher, here named Genevieve Duvall, stands trial for "corrupting a minor". As Genevieve gives testimony, the action in the court room freezes and she relives the moments in which law and justice are at odds with one another. The play was a finalist in two national playwriting competitions. "Urban Stages is proud to celebrate its 25th Anniversary - And we want YOU to join the party! Join us for a celebration of our continued commitment to new work at our FREE New Play Reading Series on Monday nights in September. Wine and refreshments will be provided."
