PROFANITY continues Sylvan Oswald’s exploration of self-made spiritualities begun in the play SUN RA (2008/2009 Writer/Director Lab) and continued in NIGHTLANDS (New Georges). Set in 1950s North Philadelphia, PROFANITY brings us grimy real estate deals, lapsed Jews, and visions of Old Europe set to Rogers and Hammerstein and Tito Puente. Two workshops, free and open to the public, will conclude the week.

Sylvan Oswald’s Studio is supported by a grant from the Six Points Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Artists, a partnership of Avoda Arts, JDub Records, and the Foundation for Jewish Culture, and made possible with major funding from UJA-Federation of New York.
