Cast Announced for TWO JEWS WALK INTO A WAR… At Playhouse On Park

TWO JEWS WALK INTO A WAR... is the first production of Playhouse on Park's 13th Main Stage Season. This production is directed by David Hammond, and it will run from September 22 - October 10, 2021.

Ishaq and Zeblyan are the last remaining Jews in Afghanistan. They share the only remaining synagogue that has not been destroyed by the Taliban. They share a mission to repopulate the Jewish community in Kabul. But they also hate each other. Can this Middle Eastern odd couple commit to one incredible act of faith to keep the diaspora alive without killing one other? A modern vaudeville full of schtick, sorrow, and survival.
