Sarasota Jewish Theatre Announces 2022-23 Season

Sarasota Jewish Theatre has announced its 2022-23 season lineup. Local Sarasota favorite actors and directors will be joined by national actors to present these plays reflecting Jewish heritage and culture. The plays are:

Bashert - Some Things are Meant to Be is written and performed by Lynne Bernfield and directed by Blake Walton. Bashert is a lyrical collection of stories and songs about things in life that couldn't have happened, shouldn't have happened, but somehow did. In the Jewish tradition, these events are bashert, "meant to be," and revealed in a musical exploration of how happy accidents can determine our destiny.

Collected Stories by Donald Margulies, directed by Howard Millman and starring Sarasota favorite Carolyn Michel. In this play, Margulies focuses on two writers--one just starting out, the other a prominent established short-story writer-- and the relationship that blossoms between them as the older writer mentors her student. This is a story of friendship, white lies, and betrayal as fascinating characters clash in an age-old conflict.

We All Fall Down is a brand-new play by Lila Rose Kaplan and directed by Jeffery Kin. This Florida premiere is a fast-paced upbeat comedy with crackling dialog and a surprising wallop at the end. Linda, the matriarch of the decidedly secular Stein family of Westchester County, has decided to hold the first Stein family Seder EVER, but where is David with the brisket? As family and friends gather in anticipation of this unprecedented family event, we learn that everyone has a secret, and the biggest secret of all is why Linda has decided that it is time to celebrate family, friendship and faith.
