In Every Generation
By Ali Viterbi Directed by Todd Salovey and Emily Moler One family. One holiday. Four millennia. The Levi-Katz family celebrates Passover again and again—1416 BCE, 1954, 2019 and 2050 to be exact! While the time, location, and language changes, the traditions stay the same. Over matzah ball soup and (vegan) brisket, this close-knit clan contends with questions of race, religion, and inter-generational trauma. The present echoes the past—and the past the present—as the family repeatedly reenacts the exodus from Egypt, each time asking themselves: must we define ourselves through trauma? Will we ever be free? And why is this night different from all other nights? Written by San Diegan Ali Viterbi, In Every Generation has already received several awards, including the 2019 National Jewish Playwriting Contest and two Kennedy Center awards in 2020. The highly-anticipated world premiere of this enthralling and touching family saga is not to be missed. "Tender and honest… Ali Viterbi has spread her wings and is soaring.” San Diego Jewish World "…not only a very human family saga, but also a timely warning about the choices that American Jews face in the present moment."
