Continuum Theater Presents: Scrambled A play by Beth Kander

Sunday, February 8 | Check in: 6:30 p.m. / Performance: 7:00 p.m. | Anshe Emet

Featured by the Chicago Jewish Play Reading Festival, a series of eight contemporary Jewish plays, read by professional actors in eight locations around the Chicago area.

Sara, an unemployed young Jewish woman, thinks an infertile Orthodox couple’s ad offering $50,000 for a Jewish egg donor might solve her financial difficulties. But when she meets the deeply observant wife, Neshama, Sara faces questions about her own Jewish authenticity. Scrambled presents women from very different backgrounds whose encounter puts their own assumptions about Jewish identity to a surprising test.

Discussion and light refreshments follow the play reading.
