Inspiring Jewish Stories on Stage l The Braid / JWT Presents:
The Braid/Jewish Women’s Theatre moves hearts and challenges minds with mostly true contemporary stories performed on stage. Since 2008, this nonprofit organization has been recognized for its unique theatrical art form, “Salon Theatre,” that sits at the intersection of theatre and storytelling. These stories are pulled from our vast collection of over 60 original “Salon Theatre” shows spotlighting diverse Jewish experiences in America today. Written by professional and lay writers ages 13-98, and performed by professional actors, these inspiring Jewish stories deliver heart, humor, chutzpah and leave you laughing or crying, or both, while celebrating the truths that connect us all.
The first series, "Doing What’s Right," features stories that explore the line between doing what is right and doing what is desired. The second series, "Who Are We Really?" features stories that explore identity and the depths of love. The third and newest series, "Forgiveness, Redemption and What it Means to be Jewish" follows the stories of several people as they journey through their lives on their way to find out what it means to be Jewish.
