The Child You Deserve

By Julia Peterson 

Directed by Michael Scholar Jr.  

It is 1957, and three generations of Jewish women are gathered around a Montreal apartment’s kitchen table. Jenny, a secretary and ‘accidental activist,’ has big dreams for her daughter and a surprising second chance at love with her partner, Rivka. When Jenny’s mother crashes into their lives the women have to confront their dreams, fears and responsibilities for their communities, the future and each other. The play serves as a sequel to A Man in the House by Elinore Siminovitch and was written by her granddaughter.
