PURE Theatre will open its celebratory 15th Season with the Southeast regional premiere of If I Forget by Steven Levenson. In this powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s seventy-fifth birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate – with biting humor and razor-sharp insight – how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning.
Price: $25/Thursdays and Saturday matinee, $28/Fridays, $32/Saturdays
