About the show

The New Roman Theatre Group presents this play about a young Orthodox Jewish couple in crisis.  More…

Told in a radically experimental style of monologue, duo-logue and fragment, "The Sinless" is about Annabelle and Tuvia, an Orthodox Jewish couple in crises. Tuvia is a rabbinical student and a man of deep faith, whereas Annabelle got swept up in the religious life. However, she is ambivalent about their marriage and the constricting religious world she finds herself in. When Tuvia leaves for the weekend to go to his brother's bachelor party, Annabelle embarks on a rebellious journey to indulge her deepest, unspoken desires. What will she do when God isn't watching?
