The NYTF production of These and Those was reviewed by Sophie Hurwitz for New Voices Magazine. She writes, “I came away from These and Those thinking that we (collectively) or at least I (personally) need more plays like this…we need this because this small-scale theatermaking, this most intimate and interpersonal form of storytelling, is suited to our most intimate stories. The Yiddish playwrights that we are only just now beginning to revive knew this, and Geye and Weaver know it, too. Teatro LATEA, where the play was performed, holds 75 people, and the Shabbat table is only so big. Our pause, our breath, our moment before the world demolishes us again, is just small and big enough to create something holy.”
* These and Those had a reading at San Diego REP as part of The Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival.
