Our Review 3 / 5

A young Jewish physicist and a left-wing poet meet at a party and fall in love. As society splinters around them, the couple's struggle to survive erupts into violence. 

Cordelia Lynn’s new play is a subversive and intimate love story about inheritance and the cycles of politics and history. Elayce Ismail directs a cast including Abigail Weinstock and Richard Katz.
