The Original Deed

November 15th @ 7 PM


Today, the Emanu-El synagogue in downtown Victoria is a beautifully restored landmark and a National Historic Site.

But it was nearly lost forever a generation ago, when a move was afoot to sell the old building and relocate to the suburbs.

In a re-creation of these events, writer Sid Tafler tells a story of love, loss, regret, conflict and healing among eight members of a family--and their lawyer.

Sam is in a pitched battle with his son Morris over the sale of the synagogue that threatens to tear apart their family and community.

As the father/son struggle reaches a climax, Sam invokes The Original Deed as a ghostly figure from his past emerges to salvage his dreams and his memories.
