TONIGHT! The Extraordinary New Bible

The Extraordinary New Bible
by Emily Chadick Weiss
Presented through Aracaworks
7:30 tonight, 5/12/11
at Ars Nova (511 54th St btw. 10th and 11th)

In present day Arizona, Father is turning sixty and demands extraordinary gifts from his grown daughters. Since he raised them on the dramatic stories, not the Jewish traditions of The Old Testament, Alison and Marissa both decide to write the best new bible for their father – one that is about the epic tale of their family. But when they learn they are competing for not only their father’s love, but the love of the rabbinic student Father found wandering in the desert, Alison and Marissa must decide if they will remain within the confines of their primitive upbringing, or venture out into secular America.

Cast: Tracee Chimo, Diane Davis, Stephen Ellis, Richmond Hoxie, Jason Liebman, Mary Jo Mecca, Janet Zarish
