Characters: 2m, 4f / Drama David Adjmi received the first ever Steinberg Mimi Playwright Award in 2009 Sixteen year old Lily knows nothing beyond the Syrian-Jewish community in Brooklyn where she lives a cloistered life with her much older husband. Soon an unlikely relationship with her enigmatic African-American maid opens Lily's world to new possibilities - but at a huge price. David Adjmi's daring new work shifts from caustic satire to violent drama as it exposes the ways we invent and defend our identities in the melting-pot of America. Impossible to dismiss...An artist...whose next work I can't wait to see -Hilton Als, The New Yorker Virtuosic playwright David Adjmi nicely evokes an arrestingly skewed subculture onstage...coolly witty...A stinging portrait of an insular Syrian Jewish community in contemporary Brooklyn. -Jason Zinoman, The New York Times
