Performance Development

JewFace is committed to workshopping edgy, intersectional, and identity-centered Jewish plays.

JewFace is a new theater collective aligned with ShPIel that has two goals: to educate ourselves on Jewish theater and to incubate new short plays that encourage writers to create stories about controversial topics within Jewish culture.

The program is co-run by Los Angeles-based artists Casey Adler and Yvonne Cone.

  • To support emerging Jewish writers
  • To include non-Jewish writers interested in writing specifically about Jewish culture
  • To create from a place of openness, understanding, and transparency
  • To not tolerate prejudice in any form between members
