A Regional Premiere of a new play by Josh Levine, A Merry Jewish Christmas is a new holiday show for those of us who are tired of sappy Christmas plays. Playwright Josh Levine has crafted a comedy that explores the wondrous and complicated truths of family life. Step into apartment 2C, where David and Olsen are preparing for the family arrival. David has lied to pretty much everyone around him, and it's bound to explode in his face when his family gathers at his apartment to celebrate Chanukah. Will David's Gentile boyfriend, Olsen, succeed at pretending to be Jewish? And will David reveal to his family the truth of his relationship?
