The God of Isaac

Starring Annie Byron, Lloyd Allison-Young, Tim McGarry, Alexis Fishman, Claudia Ware

Shalom and Moira Blumenthal present the Australian Premiere of The God of Isaac, described as “a serious comedy” and a multi-dimensional love story written by celebrated American playwright James Sherman.

To be directed by Moira Blumenthal, The God of Isaac plays at the Eternity Playhouse, Darlinghurst from 5 to 22 September.

It’s 1977 in Skokie, Illinois. When Isaac Adams, a second-generation American Jewish journalist, learns of a plan for a group of neo-Nazis to stage a demonstration in Skokie, Illinois, he wonders what, if anything, his involvement should be.

Because Isaac was raised in a non-observant home, his Jewishness had been of no relevance to him, “being Jewish meant no more than being right-handed”.
