“Trayf” is a contemporary coming-of-age comedy by Lindsay Joelle. Best friends Zalmy and Shmuel spend their days as the Rebbe’s loyal foot soldiers, driving their “Mitzvah Tank” through 1990s Manhattan performing good deeds. The two young men soon find themselves at odds as a newcomer wishing to learn more about their Chasidic ways creates discord between them.

Juxtaposing the secular and the sacred, the familiar and the unknown, the accepted and the forbidden, Zalmy and Shmuel are forced to reexamine the core of their faith and their relationship. Rich in humor, emerging playwright Lindsay Joelle’s “Trayf” is a moving new play that explores identity, assimilation and friendship.

Buy tickets at newrep.org or call the box office at 617-923-8487. Use the code HILLELNRT. RSVP for the pre-show mixer by emailing jaclyndentino@newrep.org.
