Where Our Story Comes Alive

For centuries, theater has been a way to look at humanity from different angles. It has been a space of catharsis and creative vision. Live theater and performance art are an exchange of energy between audience and artist. Mary Austin, the founder of the Santa Fe Playhouse, saw the theater as a way to share stories of what was happening in the world around her and to start conversations within her community. Through her meaningful and miraculous work, she brought greater visibility to euro-centric audiences of the realities of South Western Native American culture as well as advocate for the conservation of the wildlife of New Mexico. Mary Austin is the reason The Playhouse is alive today and it is part of our mission is to continue her work. It is our mission to create a context in which difficult and expanding conversations can take place within a container of compassion, kindness, and empowerment.

Bad Jews

By: Joshua Harmon
Directed by: Robyn Rikoon
May 14 - June 7
The night after their grandfather’s funeral, a Holocaust survivor, three cousins engage in a verbal, and sometimes physical, Battle Royale over a family heirloom. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbam, a “Super Jew.” In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam and stuck in the middle is Liam’s brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the fray. When Liam stakes claim to their grandfather's Chai necklace a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy ensues. Join us for a Theater Talkback with the actors after the show on Sunday, April 26.
