  • Grippo Stage Company presents a revival of the touching and humorous play THE GOD OF ISAAC, playwright James Sherman’s semi-autobiographical account of a young American Jew searching for his Jewish identity in the wake of the threatened neo-Nazi march in the Chicago suburb of Skokie in 1977. Directed by Dennis Začek.

    When Isaac Adams, a second generation American Jew, learns of plans for a neo-Nazi group to stage a demonstration in Skokie, Illinois, he wonders what, if anything, his involvement should be. Determined to find the truth, Isaac ultimately comes to terms with his heritage, his mother and himself. Since its world premiere at Chicago’s Victory Gardens Theater in 1985, THE GOD OF ISAAC has enjoyed productions worldwide.
