What happens when a man in his 60's asks a Rabbi for bar Mitzvah lessons? Laughter and tears.
"This one is a gentle, bittersweet comedy that's both charming and undemanding - a perfect date show, regardless of your faith."
- The Georgia Straight
Directed by Krista Jackson
Featuring: Amy Lee and Nicholas Rice
Winner of the 2017 Jewish Plays Project, Bar Mitzvah Boy tells the story of Joey, a successful lawyer who is used to things going his way. Now in his 60s, he suddenly decides he needs a Bar Mitzvah. What begins as a simple item on his to-do list becomes a deep immersion in the necessity of faith and the meaning behind rituals.
