An out-of-work actor finds one of the world's greatest relics in his grandmother's attic, giving him the fame and fortune he always wished for, which, he discovers, is not all he wants!
Adam Green portrays Joel, his Bubbie, his agent, his sister, and, well more than a dozen other characters in a comedic tour-de-force.
This outrageous new comedy by playwright Lojo Simon, directed by Will Pomerantz, explores the cult of celebrity, religion and idolatry in modern times.
Relic was part of our New American Voices Reading Series last year, and now receives a full production, with its new name, in our Studio Theatre.
