The Last Schwartz

October 20 - November 11, 2018

by Deborah Zoe Laufer

On the anniversary of their father’s death, three brothers and their sister return to the family home for the unveiling memorial service. Grounded in painful pasts, this wacky comedy/drama explores Jewish identity and the question of cultural continuity within family dynamics. We're thrilled to welcome back MJTC's Ivey-Winning director of The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, Warren C. Bowles!

VIDEO: The Last Schwartz is “a rewarding comical journey”!
