Photo Flash: The Theater At The 14th Street Y Presents THE LEAH/RACHEL PLAY

THE IN[HEIR]ITANCE PROJECT and THE 14TH STREET Y are pleased to share with Broadway World a first look at THE LEAH/RACHEL PLAY, part of The Genesis Plays, a collection of plays inspired by stories in the book of Genesis, and devised with communities in different US cities. Created in a collaborative process led by Jon Adam Ross and directed by Chantal Pavageaux, featuring a film directed and produced by Emmy-award winning filmmaker Ilana Trachtman (Praying with Lior), THE LEAH/RACHEL PLAY performs in rep (with four other plays) during a three-week limited engagement at The Theater at the 14th Street Y (344 E 14th St at 1st Ave, New York, NY 10003). Performances continue through Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

Using documentary-style interviews with community members in tandem with the scripted action on stage, in The Leah/Rachel Play a historian unearths an ancient papyrus about sisterhood and struggles with what it means for a man to have made this discovery that reveals so much about female identity. As a new father to twin baby girls, he's looking for advice anywhere he can get it.

Starring Brandon Blake and Jon Levin (2018 Drama Desk Awards Nominee - A Hunger Artist). Produced by Martha Goode. Featuring set design by Deb O, costume design by Andja Budincich, lighting design by Stacey Boggs, sound design by Caroline Faustine and projections by Phoenix Sweeney. Tyler Winthrop is the stage manager, Eli Reid is the production manager, and Zhailon Levingston is the associate director. Marketing/PR by Kampfire PR, and graphic design by Billy Keefe. Film directed and produced by Ilana Trachtman (cinematography by Lars Larson, film editing by Zelda Greenstein, and studio sound recording by Bob Marts).

Tickets are $18 (or see three plays for $14 each with a Flex Pass) and are now available online at www.14streety.org/genesis or by calling 646-395-4310. Tickets may also be purchased in-person at the box office half-hour prior to the performance. Running Time: 60 minutes
