A funny and moving new play about the joys and heartbreak of family.
Faced with their father Marvin’s worsening Alzheimer’s, the four grown Price daughters return for the final Passover celebration in their childhood home. Lily, their overwhelmed mother who's taken up cursing, is planning to put Marvin in a nursing home and sell the house. Each daughter arrives with her own baggage: Michelle picks up a total stranger to pose as her nice Jewish boyfriend; Angel seduces her ex on the roof; Claire fights with her fiancé about wedding plans; Julia, pregnant with her lesbian life partner, psychoanalyzes everyone except herself. Marvin does not recognize any of them. But when he takes the lead at their last seder, a magical moment occurs which gives the women the strength and courage to finally move forward.
 
The Last Seder received a National Foundation for Jewish Culture New Plays for Production grant, before receiving the Fund for New American Plays Award from the Kennedy Center, as well as the Charlotte Woolard Award for Promising New Voice in American Theatre. The play has been produced at The Organic Theatre, Chicago; Theatre J, DC; Ensemble Studio Theatre -LA Project; Teatro da Juventude, Brazil; Park Square Theatre, St Paul; and St. Louis Repertory. The screenplay adaptation of The Last Seder won Showtime's Tony Cox Award.
