Julia has lost a song. She knew part of it once, when she was little, before her father and his brothers starting jetting all over the world, running from their southern jewish roots. Will Dad make that clarinet laugh one more time?

Featuring Margot Leverett of the Klezmer Mountain Boys on clarinet!

Developed at The New Group and Minneapolis’s Playwrights Center, Adam’s play is beautiful and elusive, like a fragment of a gorgeous dream right as you wake up. You can almost see it, almost taste it. I’m really looking forward to hearing it this time.
