FEAST

by Tobsha Learner

Jacob, an emotionally disturbed teenager, comes late to the Passover service completely naked. He takes his place at the table in stunned silence and refuses to say anything. The rest of the family interpret his gesture in various ways - his father, a Polish failed hat designer thinks he's making a symbolic, artistic statement; his brother, a young Zionist, thinks he's making a political gesture; his grandfather thinks he's an idiot; his mother, a social worker, thinks its a reflection on her failing marriage and the Czech au pair girl reveals that she is pregnant to him. An absurdist family comedy.
