Which Play Will Be Named Best Jewish Play of 2016?

Over 200 plays on Jewish topics were submitted to The Jewish Plays Project's contest for Best Jewish Play this year. For the third year, Continuum Theater hosts The Jewish Plays Project, bringing this international contest to the Midwest.  

On March 20th, at the Northbrook Theatre, Continuum Theater has arranged for actors to perform a staged reading of selections from these brand-new Jewish plays.  Out of this year's 10 semi-finalists, our local Continuum Theater panel has selected three of our favorite plays to be showcased.  The audience is engaged in a conversation about which play should be named Best Jewish play and votes for their favorite to continue on to the final round of the contest. Be the first to see these plays and meet the founder of The Jewish Plays Project, David Winitsky,  who will give an entertaining and informative presentation about the plays and the playwrights around the world who wrote them.

If you are interested in Jewish culture and history, creative writing, theater and plays, this event is for you.

"The Jewish Plays Project puts bold, progressive Jewish conversations on world stages. The JPP's innovative and competitive development vehicle invests emerging artists in their Jewish identity; engages Jewish communities in the vetting, selecting and championing of new voices; and secures mainstream production opportunities for the best new plays."

A short synopsis of the 10 semi-finalist plays can be found here:

The Midwest Jewish Play Writing Contest was generously underwritten by a gift from Continuum Theater supporter, Sonia Marschak.
