THE LEGACY, or WHAT THE JEWS BELIEVE, written and directed by Mark Harelik, Monday, February 25 at 7:30PM Rural Central Texas, 1962: The Immigrant's son, Dave, still lives in the old family home that his father built. The family is still the only Jewish family in this isolated country town. As his son Nathan faces the (to him) bizarre prospect of becoming Bar Mitzvah, his wife Rachel faces an even greater crisis of faith. As Dave encounters the remoteness of his community, and the even further distance from the faith of his father, his entire family faces the legacy left behind by their immigrant forebears: What do the Jews believe? This is a fictionalized account of the next generation of the family introduced in the Immigrant, and the 2nd play in Mark Harelik's unfinished Texas saga of one Jewish-American family.
The Legacy was first presented at the Old Globe Theatre.
