BAT’s daytime script club will be reading Handle With Care by Jason Odell Williams at its November 15, 2018, meeting. If you need a script, please email [email protected] to make arrangements for a script.
This yuletide romantic comedy examines random ways people and things can get lost, even in our GPS-obsessed world. It is a surprisingly witty and touching comedy.
Jason Odell Williams’ play pings back and forth between the traditions of an Israeli tourist and an American college professor who grew up celebrating Easter, but also the occasional Shabbat. Both are licking their wounds in the face of loss.
Ayelet, a young Israeli woman with little command of English, reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America. Circumstances both hilarious and sad bring Ayelet together with Josh, a young man who has little command of romance. Is their attraction an accident, or destiny generations in the making?
