Some description

It’s July 2000—the Oslo Accords are 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 do to 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.


Passionate and provoking… 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

This is the play of the season so far. I won't soon forget it.



Heart-stoppingly powerful.

The Huffington Post

Ambitious and often very funny… [Levenson] gives us a lot to talk about, and a play to remember.
