THE DYBBUKS OF PARK SLOPE

written by Michael Levine
directed by Al D'Andrea

A modern Jewish love story with a supernatural twist. Charlene and David lead a fast-paced urban lifestyle that leaves little room for their spiritual life. While Charlene and her mother busy themselves planning a wedding right out of "Modern Bride" magazine, David decides to meet with a rabbi to discover his roots. An unexpected encounter with a restless spirit helps them discover what lies within their souls.

This year's Jewish-themed holiday show tackles concerns about how to remain connected to one's religious and cultural roots in the middle of our assimilated twenty-first century world in which families rarely live in the same community and lives are often too busy to make time for reflection and contemplation. Once again, playwright Michael Levine draws on Jewish folklore to spin a tale of a dybbuk, a soul with unfinished business on this earth, who helps a couple come to terms with their heritage through their choices around their wedding ceremony. Along the way, audiences will encounter a few unexpected surprises in a heart-warming production full of comedy and familiar characters.

featuring the talents of Beth Chasse, Hal Cohen, Christopher Davis, David Handwerker, Pat Mew, and Erica Thompson. The artistic staff includes Guest Director Al D'Andrea from Snowlion Repertory Company, Set Designer Craig Robinson, and Costume Designer Desiray Roy.
