THE MIKVAH PROJECT
by Josh Azouz
3 August 2019 — 10 August 2019
Directed by Georgia Green
- Now what?
- We try and part.
Eitan is 17. Avi is 35.
Eitan loves Arsenal. Avi loves his wife. Eitan goes to college. Avi is trying for a child.
They are in completely different places in their lives.
Yet, every Friday, Eitan and Avi meet at the Mikvah to take part in the Jewish ritual of submerging in the water.
As they chat about life in the synagogue, football, the nature of marriage and desire they form an unexpected bond that threatens to disrupt life outside the Mikvah.
From the writer of smash hit Buggy Baby and Victoria’s Knickers, Josh Azouz’s The Mikvah Project is a play about love in impossible circumstance.
Filled with singing and water, chutzpah and joy we are reminded how easily a heart can break.
