Welcome, Guest
Written by Josh Kornbluth
Directed by David Dower


Why would a lifelong atheist decide to get bar-mitzvahed in Israel at the age of 52? What does playing the oboe have to do with the Book of Exodus? Local legend Josh Kornbluth takes the stage to answer these questions -- and more -- along with his oboe, his rabbi, and an orchestra to call his own. Sea of Reeds is part monologue, part musical, and all Kornbluth. Runtime: 100 minutes, no intermission.

Production Sponsors:
Linda Dondero, Sarah Gill & Bonnie Stiles
Lisa Esherick & Claire Mosher
Les & Sue Polgar

Sea of Reeds debuted on the Ashby Stage in the summer of 2013 and was remounted at the JCC of San Francisco in January, 2014. The original production was generously supported by grants from The East Bay Community Foundation Fund for Artists, The Fleishhacker Foundation, Gaia Fund, Kanbar Philanthropic Fund, and The Zellerbach Family Foundation.
