Community members hard at work creating this year’s spectacle at a Purim build.

Our Purimshpil gives the ancient text of the book of Esther back to the people, opening up a shared space for our most urgent political ideas, deepest human desires and fears, and weirdest outfits. There will be spectacle, confusion, righteousness, gladness & honor… and SO MUCH MORE.

Help ensure our artists are fairly compensated for their extraordinary work. Make a generous contribution to the Purim fund today.
