About this show

In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer reunites with his two sisters for a celebration of their father's 75th birthday. All deeply invested in their own versions of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael's controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate — with biting humor and razor-sharp insight — how much of the past they're willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning.

If I Forget is a sharply funny, unflinchingly honest new play about the stories we choose to believe, the compromises we can't avoid, and the hurt only our nearest and dearest can inflict.
