Photos: First Look at the West Coast Premiere of IN EVERY GENERATION at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley

Directed by acclaimed Armenian/ Israeli-American director Michael Barakiva, In Every Generation will be presented January 18 – February 12, 2023.

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley will ring in 2023 with the West Coast Premiere of Ali Viterbi's In Every Generation. This celebration of Jewish tradition, following one family through four millennia of Passover dinners, past, present, and future, was the winner of the National Jewish Playwriting Contest. As the multi-generational, multi-cultural Levi-Katz family asks, "Why is this night different from all other nights?" they find they all have different answers as they struggle with questions of race and religion that have yet to be resolved.

Directed by acclaimed Armenian/ Israeli-American director Michael Barakiva, In Every Generation will be presented January 18 - February 12, 2023 (press opening: January 21) at Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro Street, Mountain View. For tickets (starting at $30) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (877)-662-8978.

Review: CASHED OUT at SF Playhouse Photo
What did our critic think of CASHED OUT at SF Playhouse? Cashed Out, an SF Playhouse commission two and a half years in the making, delivers on its portrayal of the bleak realities of reservation life including domestic violence, alcoholism, drug addiction, loss of culture and the casino culture and its ugly bi-product -gambling addiction. While these vices are not exclusive to indigenous peoples, they are seen at much higher incidences.
