An inside view of the Purim Story
How many things can actually go wrong in one play?
Well it seems that all depends on which play it is.
All Izzy and Luzzy want to do is get a hold of some puppets for their show. They needed a Haman, an Achashveirosh and Bigsan and Seresh, but instead they got the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Emperor of France and the Secretary-General of the United Nations!
They thought that that was the absolutely worst possible blunder but then the real story began. During the actual show the strange puppets got up and decided to run the show on their own, and Izzy and Luzzy ended up acting in the play.
Join us on a unique journey. We’ll see from inside what’s actually going on in Haman’s house. We’ll peek in on the mysterious happenings in the palace of Achashveirosh. We’ll walk through the streets of Shushan with Mordechai and the boys from his cheder, and most importantly we will observe from upfront the miraculous story of Megillas Esther.
This journey connects the past and the present, and brings together fantasy and reality in the best show ever.
