Additional Info

Formerly titled After Crystal Night. Seymour Goldstein’s Beverly Hills household is in for an emotion-packed weekend. He has attended a meeting to determine whether Jewish militants should be allowed to speak to his B’nai B’rith lodge. The ramifications of this meeting cause everyone in the family and those close to it to confront their roots and question their lives, their history, their future, their motivations, the depth of their assimilation, their relationships with each other and society and, ultimately, their personal courage and convictions. What could be the unravelling of an American Jewish family turns out to be its salvation. Full of humor and gut wrenching emotion, the climax is devastating, compelling, and satisfying, a play about Everyman for Everyman.
