Synopsis

Plays by Edward Einhorn

Edward Einhorn blends absurdist humor with philosophy in these critically acclaimed plays about legendary Jewish figures.

Golem Stories retells an old Kabalistic legend.

It's a ghost story and a love story, about a childlike clay man who may be a demon inside.

In The Living Methuselah, the oldest living man survives every disaster is human history, with the help of his wife Serach, the oldest living woman.

But when a doctor tells him he will only live until the end of the play, will this be his final curtain?

To find the title character of A Shylock, Jacob Levy interrogates every character in The Merchant of Venice, but oddly Hamlet may know the most-although this Hamlet is a woman.

And in One-Eyed Moses and the Churning Red Sea, Rabbi Tzipporah Finestein dreams Moses is a pirate captain, but what do the dreams mean?

Two congregants hold the key.
