May 30-June 24, 2018

Zalmy lives a double life: by day, he’s the rebbe’s loyal foot soldier, driving a tricked-out “Mitzvah Tank” through NYC with his best friend Shmuel. By night, he sneaks away from his orthodox community to roller-skate, dance in discos, and listen to rock and roll. But when he befriends a zealous young man eager to be his student, the barrier between Zalmy’s two worlds starts to crack—and he must choose once and for all where he belongs. Overflowing with humor and heart, you won’t want to miss this delightful new play making its world premiere at Theater J.

Winner of the 2016 Rita Goldberg Award and Jewish Play Project Top 10 finalist
