“Bremen Town” is a rural folk tragicomedy about what happens when we outlive our use.

After forty-five years of hard work and dedication, Frau Esel, the longest serving housekeeper of Völksenhaus, has been fired and sent out to pasture. In a rage, she sets out on a winding journey to Bremen to live with her estranged son, meeting a host of trying characters along the way (and doing her best to avoid the stupid Kite Festival).


Oct. 21-29

Knock Knock

OCT 21-29, 2023.

Harold Green Jewish Theatre

Written and performed by Niv Petel

How would you raise your child if you knew that one day their turn will come to hold a rifle? As a liaison officer for the army, Ilana, a single mother, supports families who’ve lost their sons and daughters to the wars. But when the time comes for her only son to wear the army uniform, she faces a life-changing dilemma. Through drama and comedy, Niv Petel weaves a vivid and detailed familial relationship in Knock Knock, an immersive physical mono-drama about the effects of National Service on everyday life.

With presold tickets alone, we’ve already committed $50,000 towards this donation. A sold-out run could triple this contribution. This is our chance, as a community, to rally behind our friends and family in Israel.
