The old adage about not discussing politics or religion is quickly dispatched by the members of the Fischer family in Steven Levenson’s darkly comic production. In 2000, after failed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, Michael, a Jewish studies scholar and professor, gathers with his two sisters to celebrate the birthday of their ailing WWII veteran father. The conversation soon passes from topics of Jewishness, Israel and homeland to the more personal. Levenson looks at family intimacies in this witty production.
