The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington’s 2019 season opens with Cherry Docs written by Canadian playwright David Gow. Directed by Liam Castellan, this drama follows a neo-Nazi Skinhead, played by Christopher Crider-Plonka, who is charged with murder in Toronto. Legal Aid assigns him a Jewish lawyer, played by JTB veteran Jonathan Golembiecki, and they are forced to collaborate on a defense. The Skinhead is pushed beyond his prejudice, while the lawyer is forced to examine the limits of his own liberal tolerance, and the demons that might be underneath it. Cherry Docs is a white-hot examination of hate and how hard it is to uproot from society.
There will be talkbacks directly following the performance on Thursday, May 9 and Thursday, May 16.

The Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center houses a unique blend of artists, performers, and educators. At the Ivy Tech Waldron, visitors can see a play, catch a concert, and enjoy multiple art galleries. The venue’s two performance spaces, the Whikehart Auditorium and the Rose Firebay, have both hosted countless events since the center’s doors opened in 1992. Although it’s just as adaptable and well-equipped, the Rose Firebay is a more intimate space than the auditorium upstairs, seating up to 90 people. The Rose Firebay is fully accessible through the Waldron’s Fourth Street entrance. Parking is available on the street around downtown.
The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington is deeply committed to both Judaism and theatre. It is their intent to produce works that arise from or reflect the Jewish experience, but that also focus on universal issues of the human condition that are accessible to a diverse audience. Their aim is to bring together an audience of Jews and non-Jews to explore aspects of Jewish life in a modern world.
