About this show

Two Jews Walk into a War is a funny and poignant play set in a dilapidated old synagogue in Kabul during the final days of the Taliban regime. Ishaq and Zeblyan are the last two surviving Jews in all of Afghanistan. The problem is, they hate each other and spend their days hurling insults at one another while struggling to recreate the sacred Torah. Could it be that the salvation of Afghanistan's Jewish community is left in the hands of a Middle-Eastern odd couple? Inspired by a true story, Two Jews Walk into a War is directed by James Glossman and stars Reathel Bean and John Pietrowski. (Co-produced with Playwrights Theatre.)
