    A gorgeous, lush look at the lives of three generations and the impact of the Holocaust on them. Past, present, and future combine as the story moves back and forth, giving us glimpses of how their love both protects and hinders them. A beautiful play from a writer to watch.

    One of the most moving plays I’ve ever encountered. The depth of historical, Jewish consciousness here is unparalleled, managing to theatricalize both the inherited trauma and the inherited hope of our people in a dramatically nuanced and experimentally bold presentation. There is no sentimentality or stale, normative Judaism in this piece; it is a modern, honest reexamination of our past and a daring, radical look into our future.

    I attended a reading of this play at the Kennedy Center, and quite literally broke down in tears at the end. This is a stunning play asking deep questions about heritage and identity in times of violence and pain - in the past, in our present, and in our future. To say that this play resonates deeply is an understatement. Jewish or not, everyone should experience this play.

    This is a lively and empathetic portrait of one family across time, and a Passover play that beautifully liberates the story from the seder table with a transcendent final act. I love the language, the traditions, the tough-but-vital questions that the play poses about what it means to be Jewish (here and now and across the generations).

    In Every Generation is a haunting, poignant play about collective memory and the way in which we carry our pasts with us. By taking you on a journey through time and language, she explores what it means to be a family, a people, and an individual within a broader community. Ali has built a masterpiece around one dinner, and I can't recommend it enough.
