ABOUT The Wanderers:

Orthodox Jews Esther and Schmuli are newly married, and their future is written in the laws of the Torah. Secular Jew Abe is a famous novelist who believes he can write his own future...until an unexpected email from a movie star puts his marriage to the test and threatens to prove him wrong. From playwright Anna Ziegler comes the New York premiere of a play that ripples across cultures, challenging two very different couples with the same question: Can we be happy with what we have while we have it?

ABOUT the bandaged place:

A brutal and lyrical play about the things we hang on to and the price of moving forward, the bandaged place tells the story of one man's attempt to free himself from the abuses of his past. Jonah is forced to turn to his precocious daughter and tough love grandmother for support when a former lover resurfaces, re-opening a painful wound.

the bandaged place was originally presented by New York Stage and Film and Vassar in the Powerhouse Season, Summer 2019 is the winner of the 2018 Relentless Award.
