The Levi-Katz family celebrates Passover again and again and again while times, locations and languages change. Over matzah ball soup and (vegan) brisket, the family contends with questions of race, religion and inter-generational trauma. The present echoes both the past and future as the family reenacts the famous exodus traditions asking, "Why is this night different?" and "Will we ever be free?" Named one of the top Jewish plays in 2019.
