Directed by JPP Resident Director Benjamin Kamine, these fantastically brash, bold and blasphemous plays negotiate our definitions of right and wrong, through the eyes of Timmy, his Dad, and the prophetic book of 1st Samuel. You won't soon forget them.
"When Little Timmy's life falls to pieces, he seeks comfort in reading the story of David’s pursuit of power and love in the Bible from the killing Goliath to his own son's rebellion against his kingdom. Bloody, exuberant, and adapted from the book of Samuel verbatim, True Bible Tales follows David's life onstage through the eyes of a little boy who falls farther than should be possible"
.The plays are presented as part of the Tikkun Leil Shavuot, at the 14th Street Y, a wacky all-nighter of study, art, drink and fellowship. They will start at 7 pm, and play on the half hour until 2 am. Stay for the whole night, stay for one or two, whatever you need.
