OOF!: On One Foot 10-Minute Play Festival

21st Century Jewish Community Playwright Fellow Wayne Firestone is proud to announce a new ten-minute play festival that seeks to heal the world. The “OOF! On One Foot Contest”. Inspired by Hillel the Sage’s teaching, given when he was asked if he could summarize the whole of the Torah while standing on one foot: “That which is hateful to you, do not do unto your fellow. That is the whole Torah; the rest is commentary. Now, go and learn.”

Enjoy a fantastic and diverse array of six 10-minute plays, four from competing writers from all over the world, alongside two established writers, directed by JPP Artistic Producers Illana Stein and Will Steinberger.

Part of The Festival of New Jewish Plays running Thursday, August 15 through Saturday, August 17
