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

And a Buddhist, a Christian, and an Atheist all have their say

Husband Jack tries hard to keep the sanctity of tradition but in this celebration of "freedom from bondage" none of the guests escape unscathed

Is peace possible - even at the dinner table?

The 90 minute play explores the question with unsparing humor and with compassion for all who dare to voice answers

" ... a free-swinging discussion of politics and religion ... the ethnic smorgasbord serves up zingers for every palate" ~ Variety
