    The Schmooze Club trip to the theater to see OH, GOD
    June 26, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Atlas Performing Arts Center

    The Schmooze Club is organizing a trip to the theater to see OH, GOD. We plan to get together for a light dinner prior to the performance.

    OH, GOD is by Israeli playwright Anat Gov In this gently veiled analogy, God comes knocking on the office door of a psychotherapist and single mother named Ella; both of whom have been battling low-grade depression. With a clash of quotes from Genesis and the Prophets, framed by a modern-day wit, two-time winner of the Israeli Theatre Award for Best Comedy Anat Gov brings a “funny…often brilliant text” (The Jerusalem Post) that forces us to grapple with the balance between power and humility. For more information, www.mosaictheater.org/oh-god Mosaic Theater at the Atlas Performing Arts Center DC

    Please let Madeleine Levy know at schmooze@KolAmiVirginia.org if you’re interested in going.
