from Peace Cafe Co-Founder Mimi Conway

Theater J and the Washington DCJCC have created and nurtured a place for public conversations on important topics more easily avoided. The reading of Caryl Churchill’s ten-minute work, SEVEN JEWISH CHILDREN, A Play for Gaza, as well as other short readings, is the most current example.

With dramatic art at its center, Theater J has been offering discussions on art and ideas–and engaging our hopes and fears–in a safe space for more than a decade.

This is a invaluable service and a model to the whole community. These public conversations are part of what makes this theater and this house great.
