Production Description

Casting “Questions Starting With Why,” a theological student narrative for Brooklyn College. Synopsis: A Hebrew high school student named Ben gets a full day of detention for getting into a fight and cursing out his teacher. He shows up at detention the next day to find himself alone with a new teacher named Rabbi Becker. Ben tries to debunk their religion with logical arguments but Becker isn’t the traditional orthodox Rabbi that he seems to be. In the end Ben is convinced that his religion is more than its face value.
