Myriam's annual Passover Seder, a multicultural mix of family and friends, threatens to explode as politics and religion hijack the dinner conversation. Myriam's bond with her liberal daughter is tested, as is her lifelong friendship with Sam, a Palestinian American who's just returned from the Middle East. A Buddhist, a Christian, an Atheist—all have their say. Her husband, Jack, tries hard to keep the sanctity of tradition…But in this celebration of "freedom from bondage," hilarious and poignant, none of the guests escape unscathed. Is peace possible…even at the dinner table? The play explores the question with unsparing humor and with compassion for all who dare to voice answers.
