Comedy

This warm-hearted comedy about three men – a Jew, a Chicano, and an African American – shows hope for the races and generations. Jamar goes to college and works for Izzie Silvers’ market, formerly a kosher deli now selling collard greens and tortillas. After fifty years, city inspectors are threatening to close Silvers’ Market, but Jamar, his hip-hop sidekick Billy, and the elder Chavez scheme to defy the bureaucrats and bring the store to profitability. Nostalgic humor and the unrelenting sarcasm of familiar friends highlight this one-set, two-act, two-hour comedy about a time when human values supersede monetary concerns.
