After disapproving of her last relationship, Sarah Goldman’s conservative Jewish parents are anxious to meet her new beau, Dr. David Steinberg. The only problem is that Dr. Steinberg is completely fictitious, and Sarah never actually broke up with her WASP boyfriend Chris Cringle. Before the Goldman’s come for dinner, Sarah hides Chris and hires male escort and aspiring actor Bob Schroeder to play the part of the charming Jewish doctor. In this hilarious romantic comedy, just how far will Sarah go to please her parents?
The cast includes Rachel Turner (Sarah), Kyle Steffen* (Chris), Austin Lazek (Bob), Damon Guerrasio (Joel), Sharon Kay White* (Miriam) and Josh Levy (Abe).
“This play has a big heart and we love the characters like family.” says director Michael Curtis Grittner, “Sarah works so frantically to keep her parents, and everyone else, happy that she forgets to manifest joy for herself. She knows her parents won’t approve of her boyfriend so her answer is to invent a Jewish boyfriend. Now we are left to wonder how high she can build her beau charade tower before the Jenga block of truth brings it down.”
