“Jews in My Basement” premieres in Texas

Jews in My Basement has its world premiere at the McKinney Repertory Theatre. The show runs March 6 through 15 at the McKinney Performing Arts Center in McKinney, Texas. In this new work for three men and three women, the orderly lives of an obsessive-compulsive housewife, her scholarly husband, and her agoraphobic older sister are thrown off balance when their politically-correct sister uses their home to conduct interviews for the entertainment for her son’s birthday party.  Tossed into the mix are an aging clown and an overly talkative mime with a criminal record. For more about the show, go to To preview this script or others for adults or children, contact the playwright at or visit
