Rover Dramawerks presents Kosher Lutherans
Rover Dramawerks concludes their 21st season with the comedy Kosher Lutherans by William Missouri Downs.
Hanna and Franklyn are a seemingly perfect couple who desperately want to have a child of their own, but are unable to do so. One day their dreams come true: they meet a young, naïve, pregnant girl from Iowa who offers to let them adopt her out-of-wedlock baby. Just before the adoption papers are signed, they discover she doesn’t know they’re Jewish. In a desperate attempt not to blow the deal, the couple, “aided” by their Jewish friends Ben and Martha, decide to pose as Lutherans to appeal to the girl's apparent Midwestern sensibilities, leading to some hysterical twists and turns.
