L.A. child-less Jews, Hanna and Franklyn, find themselves in a STICKY situation on the first night of Hanukah – for this is when they first meet the innocent young woman whose baby they will be adopting. They soon realize the poor girl is from the backwoods Bible Belt, where her only views of the world are through her bigoted, racist father! Knowing that the revelation they are Jewish could throw a monkey wrench into the whole works, the couple hastily pose as Lutherans to appeal to the girl’s “Christian” sensibilities … with hysterical and touching results!
William Missouri Downs has won numerous awards for both playwriting and scriptwriting and his plays have been produced by over 100 theatres worldwide, including the Wisdom Bridge Theatre in Chicago, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, The Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the International Theatre Festival in Israel, the Stadt Theater Walfischgasse in Austria, and the Durban Performing Arts Center in South Africa, to name a few. In Hollywood, he wrote for shows such as NBC’s My Two Dads, Amen, and Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Mr. Downs be joining HotCity Theatre and the Kranzberg Arts Center for the production of Kosher Lutherans and audience talkbacks on Friday December 13th and Saturday December 14th.

Stephanie Liner creates large orbs and beautifully upholstered egg shaped sculptures with windows that allow the viewer to peer inside the structure to discover a beautiful girl trapped inside. Barely moving, the model is confined to her space and moving could create damage to the structure. Liner’s work uses methods and materials traditional to the furniture and textile belt of the Southern United States, which become environments for characters and performance.
This work explores the connection between the human body and architecture, specifically the relationship between Interior and Exterior. Liner is also playing with the roles of gender, masculine and feminine. Idealized notions of beauty are represented by the elegant decoration on the exterior of this strong and masculine furniture-like structure.
