ACTS is proud to present their 2017 holiday production, "Kosher Lutherans" by William Missouri Downs, sponsored by Aaron's of Seymour!
This lighthearted comedy centers on Hanna and Franklyn, who are the perfect couple - or so it seems! They desperately want to have a child of their own, but are unable to do so, casting a shadow over their marriage. As the couple begins to wonder if they'll ever become parents, they have a chance encounter with a God-fearing, pregnant girl from Iowa, who offers to let the couple adopt her out-of-wedlock baby. Just before the adoption papers are signed, though, Hanna and Franklyn discover the girl is unaware they are Jewish. Knowing the revelation could throw a ratchet into the whole works, the couple poses as Lutherans to appeal to the girl's apparent Midwestern sensibilities. But how far are they willing to go to have a family?
The performances will be Friday & Saturday, December 8-9 & 15-16, 2017, and will take place at ACTS' suite 208 in the Shoppes at Seymour outlet mall. Doors will open at 7:00pmET, and the show will start at 7:30pmET. Directed by Elyse McGill. Produced by special permission from Samuel French, Inc. Sponsored by Aaron's of Seymour, the Indiana Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, and Columbus Area Arts Council.
