THE STORY: Ishaq and Zeblyan are the last remaining Jews in Afghanistan. They share the only remaining synagogue that has not been destroyed by the Taliban. They share a mission to repopulate the Jewish community in Kabul. But they also hate each other. Can this Middle Eastern odd couple commit to one incredible act of faith to keep the diaspora alive without killing one other? A modern vaudeville full of schtick, sorrow, and survival.
“...amusing, sweet-natured, and irreverant.” —The New York Times.

“Both timely and timeless, Two Jews Walk into a War... should hook its audience with guffaws, then give them something to think about while they are laughing.” —Palm Beach Post.

“Fall-off-your-chair-funny.” —Catskill Chronicle.

“Wonderfully funny and amazingly poignant.” —The Sacramento Bee.

“An uproarious comedy with a twist of faith. Through a humorous story and unforgettable characters, playwright Seth Rozin poignantly explores issues of faith, commitment and perseverance that keeps audiences laughing and thinking long past curtain call.” —The Jewish Ledger.
