THE GETT: ONE WOMAN'S CREATION MYTH
The Gett is a tale of the dirty and the divine, drawing on everything from the Torah to bad sex. It’s about the tacky menorah in your lobby behind the Christmas tree and the lover whose phone number you can’t forget and that voicemail from your mother you haven't listened to yet. Punctuated by magic and ritual, this play is a comedy of separation and restoration.
