"Hypnotic... I couldn't take my eyes off the screen." - Todd Shotz, Producer T42 Entertainment, Founder HebrewHelpers 

"I put it together. This text. This holy, sacred text.

I made it What It Is."

...so begins the tale of the Scribe who put together the first Torah.

In ancient Jerusalem, under the watchful eyes of Ezra and Nehemiah, a reluctant Scribe races to

codify the Torah and save his people. But before he can reconcile the multiple and conflicting source texts into one coherent story, the Scribe must navigate his doubts, his people's history,

and his longing for the good-old-days of exile in Babylon!

It's the (maybe) true story of how "in the beginning" really began.

The Scribe is an anachronistic, funny and thoughtful solo-show

available for virtual and in-person performance!! 

"Answers present-day questions and speaks to a present-day audience."
- Dr. Shawna Dolansky (Professor, Carleton University)
