When a family gathers to celebrate Passover dinner, a variety of conflicts emerge--about the value of faith, conversion, the truth or falsity of religion, and the nature of parental responsibility. "Why is this night different from all other nights?" Because it is both a celebration of freedom, but also a recollection of the cost of freedom, and of the shadow of death "passing over" us all. But of course, this being a Jewish family, it is also a comedy.

The Face in the Reeds is a workshop theatrical performance written Robin Russin, UCR Associate Professor of Theatre and MFA Director.
