Bangers and mash at school lunch, chopped liver with gribenes at home; morris dancing with jingling bells, the kazatzkah at family weddings; politely murmuring “biscuit anyone?” at work as a BBC producer, kvetching about cold kneidlach at Friday night family dinners. Writer/performer Suzanne Levy juggles the tsuris and joy of sparring identities in this funny, poignant solo play about growing up Jewish in the UK.

Written & performed by Suzanne Levy, directed by Stacie Chaiken.

Suzanne Levy is an award-winning British-born journalist, now living in Los Angeles, who’s worked for the BBC, NPR, PBS and other three-letter organizations in the US and the UK. (She’s also worked for longer ones). As an actor, she performed at the Edinburgh festival and in community theater in London. One day she realized that while she was expert at telling other people’s stories, she’d never told her own. So she sat down and wrote her one-woman play about the identity-stretching experience of growing up Jewish in the UK. Yes, she likes bagels, lox, and a schmear of cream cheese. Yes, she likes tea. Sometimes she likes them together.

The Santa Monica Playhouse Benefit Series is an innovative program that presents extremely limited engagements of new and developing works by emerging and renowned local, national and international artists. Solo shows, concerts, spoken word and poetry nights, dance evenings, performance art and full productions, give voice to new material and artists who might otherwise not have a platform for their works.
