If I Forget

Studio Theatre
1501 14th St. NW Washington

It's July 2000: the Gore/Bush/Nader election cycle is in full swing, the Camp David Summit is falling apart, and in Tenleytown, a modern Jewish family is fracturing over what to do with their 14th Street real estate. Their mother has died, their father will need full-time care, and as their adult children debate what to do next, no topic is off limits: American Jews and their relationship to Israel, who's already given enough to this family, a sibling's parenting choices. A political and deeply personal play about history, responsibility, and what we're willing to sacrifice for a new beginning, told with vicious humor and unflinching honesty by Bethesda native Steven Levenson.

DC Metro Theater Arts - Highly Recommended

"...If I Forget is a courageous production about Jewish-American dreamers trying to find a way to stay together as a functioning family with their world on a precipice. The family members may argue constantly, but they know when to cease bickering with a joke or a hug. Survival together as a family means that compromise is not a dirty word."

"...In the end, Levenson declines to provide a definitive answer to the question, “Is the past truly a warm blanket – or a millstone around our necks?” This ultimate detachment and open ended approach makes If I Forget all the more satisfying and realistic. The Fischers’ tale reminds us that in lieu of perfect answers, we’re often stuck making imperfect moral compromises, simply to fight another day. And most of the time, that’s good enough. It has to be."
