A documentary theater examination of American-Jewish notions of Germany

The 614th Commandment is a darkly funny play in which two actors embodying multiple characters examine both the role of Holocaust history in contemporary Jewish identity and American- Jewish perspectives regarding Germany in the
21st century, all through a critical, absurdist lens.

It is based on over 100 interviews conducted with Jewish people of a variety of backgrounds in Los Angeles, California, and was inspired by the writer’s experiences as an American Jewish woman living in Berlin.
