ABOUT IF I FORGET
Redbud Productions continues its 19th year with this critically acclaimed new play, winner of the 2017 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play. Playwright Steven Levenson won the 2017 Tony Award for the smash Broadway musical hit Dear Evan Hansen.
In the final months before 9/11, a liberal Jewish studies professor (Dave Barker) reunites with his two sisters (Melissa Stewart, Susan Todoroff) to celebrate their aged father (Tim Grimes)’s birthday. Secrets and long-held resentments rush to the surface with biting humor and razor-sharp insight as the three siblings argue over how much they’re willing to sacrifice for a new beginning. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, they clash over everything from the professor’s controversial new book to the enormous pressures of caring for an ailing parent.
“Passionate and provoking, If I Forget is a family play, a political play and a kitchen-sink play. ..The three adult children of an ailing father, Lou Fischer, are outspoken Jewish-Americans. Irritable and animated, the Fischers come vibrantly alive in this young playwright’s funny, bruising, searching voice. — The New York Times
