The Kabbalistic Psychoanalysis of Adam R. Tzaddik

Psychic conflicts take on a mythical significance in a play about a young man’s obsession with a sacred Jewish text. The play chronicles the psychoanalysis of Adam Tzaddik as he and his doctor uncover the root of Adam’s denials and desires.

The Offering

Drawing on the classic tales of biblical patriarchs, The Offering explores timeless problems of communication between fathers and sons. In a trio of episodes, the play follows four generations of a single family as it struggles towards and ambiguous triumph.
