9780881455564: Jericho

Several years after tragedy impacted their lives, a family comes together once again for Thanksgiving dinner. While family members struggle to come to terms with residual anger, grief and guilt, Jack Canfora's thought-provoking play explores how people cope with personal and collective catastrophe. Displaying surprising humor and biting wit, this Jericho, Long Island clan exposes their desperate strategies for resolution and redemption. "JERICHO is a play about September 11. It is also a traumatic-Thanksgiving-dinner-with-the-family play and a play about being Jewish. All in all, it is a lovely, humorous work with laughs that resolve into a meditation on the pains and satisfactions of living after a tragedy ... It is a real accomplishment ... Mr Canfora has delivered a smart, hard-hitting drama filled with biting wit. JERICHO doesn't leave audiences with an easily summarized message, but it's difficult to forget one of Beth's lines from the first scene: 'There are some things it should be impossible to recover from.'" -New York Times "JERICHO [will] show you how a bracingly adult, contemporary play can be a thrill-ride in itself ... by balancing the truly gut-wrenching emotional fireworks with a bitterly snarky sense of humor." -Asbury Park Press "Canfora's dialogue shows a true writer at work." -Newark Star-Ledger "An important addition to the repertoire of the American stage." -Theatre Communications Group
