Overview

Like so many great mysteries, it all began in an attic with a dusty old suitcase... The discovery of a stash of letters stamped with Swastikas opens clues to an untold family history spanning multiple generations in The Book of Joseph—the gripping true story of resilience and truth-tracking determination spanning Baltimore and beyond. Richard Hollander’s book, Every Day Lasts a Year: A Jewish Family’s Correspondence from Poland, is brought to the stage in this mesmerizing new adaptation that restores a family’s uncharted legacy—celebrated by revelation and remembrance.

Please note: The Book of Joseph runs about 2 hours and 15 minutes and will be performed in two acts with one intermission. This production uses theatrical haze and herbal cigarettes.
