Two Jews Walk Into a War…

By Seth Rozin
Directed by Adam Immerwahr
January 11 – February 5, 2023


Ishaq and Zeblyan are the last remaining Jews in Afghanistan. They share the only remaining synagogue that has not been destroyed by the Taliban. They share a vital mission to repopulate the Jewish community in Kabul. And they hate each other. Can this cantankerous couple commit to one incredible act of faith to keep their community alive without killing one another first? Part The Odd Couple and part Waiting for Godot, Two Jews Walk Into a War… is a ripped-from-the-headlines, modern day vaudeville full of schtick, sorrow, and survival.

“[a] clever, uncompromising, relentlessly comic and catastrophic 90-minute philosophical argument” – The Hartford Courant
