JUCOBY JOHNSON (THE WHIPPING MAN, 2017); mIRIAM SCHWARTZ (DAI [ENOUGH], 2016). 

Welcome to Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company’s 23rd season! Great theater not only plays a large role in helping to create the richness of our community, but it also can be an engine for change – for learning, individual growth, and fostering understanding. I think you’ll be as excited as I am for what lies ahead. As we continue to build on our legacy as a national leader in staging bold new work about Jewish history and culture with themes universal to people of all backgrounds, I hope you’ll join the MJTC family of theatergoers who expect the best and love the special intimacy of our work. I look forward to seeing you soon!

-Barbara Brooks Producing Artistic Director

"The topics of this play  - religion, guns and politics - seem heavy. But a heavy drama about heavy topics doesn’t interest me. What interests me is a play that gets to the heart of the people around these issues. And when you write about people, you can’t help but let them be funny..."

Good-natured and popular Republican Senator Charlie Whitmore is up for re-election in North Carolina. Just three days before voting, he lets slip to a blogger his new and not-so-popular thoughts on God and the second amendment. As his bible-thumping wife, Sara, works to retain religion in their marriage, Alex, his New York Jewish liberal staffer, fights to keep the campaign from spinning out of control. Hailed as "gripping entertainment" (LA Times), this new comedy looks at America's political system today.
