An unexpected knock on the door, and Jonny’s home again…to his sister, his niece, and the past he left behind. Join the Cohens on their mystical journey, traversing darkness, finding light -- and ultimately themselves. For when it comes to family bonds, not even death can stand in the way.
From the Playwright
Writing Bubby’s Shadow was my opportunity to research my heritage -- the laws and customs of Judaism as well as the traditions of my own family, drinking in never-before-shared details of my mother’s childhood, my grandparents’ home of long ago, and intertwining some of these familial gems into the story I had to tell. From the initial reading, the workshop production, and pre-production for the upcoming showcase, much has changed personally, and I now hold the bonds of my family as more sacred than ever. I “understand” (if such a thing is possible) life, death and the hereafter in much fuller, more profound terms.
