Capture the Moon

Synopsis:
a long time ago, before street lights were invented, the people in a Jewish shtetl were too poor to have lanterns to light their way around their village on moonless Sabbath nights. So what do they do? they come up with imaginative ways to capture the full moon! Based on Jewish folktales, and laced with Jewish irony and wit, this funny new play for young audiences takes a light-hearted look at what it's like to be different. It's also a celebration of simple wisdom, tolerance and how every one of us is unique.
