The Grandkid: a JTB Staged Reading

07:30 pm to 09:00 pm
Online
https://www.jewishtheatrebloomington.com/the-grandkid

You are invited to a first for the Jewish Theatre of Bloomington! Join us via Zoom for a staged reading of “The Grandkid” by John Lazarus, one of Canada’s leading playwrights! This honest and heartwarming intergenerational play is directed by Darrell Stone; starring Gerard (Gerry) Pauwels and Anna Doyle.

Julius Rothstein and his granddaughter Abby have loved each other from opposite ends of Canada since Abby was born. But now, accepted as a freshman student at the University where Julius teaches, Abby is moving in with him to be close to school and to keep her newly widowed grandfather company.

The two must negotiate a new relationship as housemates and friends, which means dealing with issues of youth and age, work and play, activism and apathy, homework and heart attacks, and those three tricky topics: sex, politics and religion.

What: The Grandkid – a JTB Zoom staged reading
When: Saturday, August 15th at 7:30 pm OR Sunday, August 16 at 3:00 pm (EST)
Where: Online via Zoom. After submitting your RSVP, you will receive an email with the Zoom link at least one day prior to the reading.

This is our gift to you during these dark times, but please consider a donation to help JTB overcome lost revenue from the cancellation of our spring and fall shows. RSVP no later than Monday, August 10 to attend! Visit www.jewishtheatrebloomington.com for more info.
