About this show

Men of Clay, a semi-autobiographical comedy by acclaimed playwright/director Jeff Cohen, is a personal story about the playwright's father set in early 1970s Baltimore. Men of Clay captures summers on the red clay tennis courts of Druid Hill Park, and the camaraderie between the "men of clay" - Squeaky Cohn and his buddies Ira Farber, Danny Dickler and Nate Askin - along with the era's Jewish culture and racial tensions and the men's penny-pinching schemes and their stubborn resistance to change.
