“…passionate and provoking…Irritable and animated, the Fischers come vibrantly alive in [Levenson’s] funny, bruising, searching voice…IF I FORGET speaks to both the head and the heart.” —The New York Times.
“…a trenchant depiction of American Jewish identity at a crossroads…IF I FORGET is ambitious and often very funny. It has the sparky intracultural conflict of Joshua Harmon’s Bad Jews
, the propertied-socialist guilt of Tony Kushner’s iHo
, the looming family dread…of Stephen Karam’s The Humans
and Tracy Letts’s August: Osage County
. …[Levenson] gives us a lot to talk about, and a play to remember.” —Time Out New York.
“…one of those rare family dramas in which you believe that the characters are actually related to one another. The interpersonal dynamics will ring bitterly true for anyone who’s ever fought with a sibling…and the emotional and physical toll of caring for an infirm parent is rendered with heartbreaking poignancy. The play also blends its complex political and personal themes in uncommonly skillful fashion…[IF I FORGET] rings with stunning emotional truth.”—The Hollywood Reporter.
