The Black-Jew Dialogues

The Black-Jew Dialogues is a provocative two-actor comedy which explores the absurdity of prejudice and racism.  This show teaches its audience members how to engage in cross-generational and cross-cultural dialogue.  It combines fast-paced sketches, improvisations, puppets, a game show, and a post-show discussion.

The goal of the Black-Jew Dialogues is to promote open and respectful conversation among our audience members about their differences.

“Brave theater that opens people up to the possibility of change.”

John H. Houchin, Boston College, Chair, Theater Department
