Precipice follows Sharrah’s conversion story to Judaism, a journey that takes her from her future in-laws’ Seder table to a synagogue in the Philippines. Caught between her Filipino mother’s expectations and her brother’s estrangement from the family, she wonders if she’s ready to walk the path of the Torah.

 

Winnipeg playwright & author, Primrose Madayag Knazan, writes from a Filipino-Canadian, Jewish, and woman’s perspective. Her plays have been featured at Winnipeg Jewish Theatre (reading of Precipice at the So Nu? festival), Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre (Where.Are.You.From.), Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Sarasvati Production’s FemFest (Wildflowers & Wallflowers; Breast Milk, Best Milk), and Carlos Bulosan/Theatre Amihan’s Tales from the Flip Side Filipino-Canadian playwright’s festival (Then Comes Marriage). Her plays Shades of Brown and Two Browns Don’t Make a White have been published by Scirocco Drama and Playwrights Canada Press. Her first novel, Lessons in Fusion, was published by Great Plains Publications.

 

The Canadian Jewish Playwriting Competition is a program of the Miles Nadal JCC. The MNjcc would like to thank their partners: The Winnipeg Jewish Theatre, The Harold Green Jewish Theatre of Toronto, Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montreal, and Neptune Theatre in Halifax.
