Dividends

Overview

How well does any grandson know his grandfather? Dividends explores the generation gap between a struggling young artist and his Jewish grandfather. Neal, the grandson, finds himself forced to look after his 83-year-old grandfather after he falls ill. While caring for him, Neal learns a great deal about his grandfather's life, including the fact that he never had a bar mitzvah. When Neal decides to give his father the bar mitzvah he never had, the grandfather's wife of fifty-nine years hovers over both as only a Jewish grandmother could.

Dividends is a warm and tender play about traditions, caring, change and love.
