The daughter of a rabbi falls in love with her best friend, Sarah, whilst being engaged to the perfect match. The central character is then torn between the demands of her Orthodox Jewish upbringing and her heart, in this fictionalized one-woman musical written and performed by Emily Rose, directed by Lori Steinberg.
The show enjoyed a performance at the York New Musical Festival, a successful run in the Edinburgh Fringe last summer and an Off-Broadway run.
