MEN OVERBOARD – Upcoming Bema Production

Families are Complicated!
Written by Rich Orloff and Directed by Kevin McKendrick

This award-winning play about an entertaining and complicated family opens on May 5th in Bema’s Black Box Theatre. Playwright Rich Orloff has written a funny and perceptive play about a Bar Mitzvah boy who struggles between obedience and defiance of his father and who doubts he is ready to become a man. The boy’s Bar Mitzvah brings together his politician father and his two brothers, a therapist, a fading, forceful and funny Zaida and a Buddhist monk. Throw in the boy’s Bar Mitzvah tutor; a woman who loves the boy and possibly one of his uncles. Winner of the Long Beach Playhouse New Play Contest and a finalist for the Woodward-Newman New Play Award.
