Message from Alliance for Jewish Theatre member Wendy Kout - West Coast screenwriter, playwright and producer

Jewish humor. Where would we all (Jews and non-Jews) be without it? Would we even BE without it?

So, I have been tasked to help organize and be on the panel on Jewish humor at the next Alliance for Jewish Theatre Conference in Boston in October 22 - 25 2017.

From its spirit-saving, age-old coping mechanism to its present-day political and social commentary… from its power to provide entertainment and escape, to its capacity to challenge and confront — humor and Jews doing humor has been a vital part of the Jewish collective and its individual identity.
