Play by Wendy Wasserstein
Directed by Lowell Williams

Second Stage P roductions, the professional arm of Manchester Community Theatre Players (MCTP), is pleased to present The Sisters Rosensweig on February 12, 13, and 14, 2016 at the MCTP Theatre at the North End Montessori School, 698 Beech St. Manchester.  The Sisters Rosensweig is a play by Wendy Wasserstein which focuses on three Jewish-American sisters and their lives.  Sara, who lives in London, is a representative for a major Hong Kong bank and is about to turn fifty-four. Her sisters, Gorgeous Teitelbaum and Pfeni Rosensweig, arrive to help celebrate the birthday. Gorgeous is Dr. Gorgeous with a radio advice program; Pfeni is a world traveler. Various friends and boyfriends also arrive for the party. In particular, Mervyn, a friend of Pfeni's boyfriend Geoffrey, falls instantly in love with Sara.  Wasserstein has said that the play is "about being Jewish." She "wanted to write a play that celebrated the possibilities of a middle-aged woman who, unlike her other protagonists, does not end up alone."
