JC3 by Seth Rozin

10th reading in FORUM Soundings Series Jan 3, 2013 at 7pm

A new comedy by the author of Two Jews Walk into a War. Dr. Posner is a New York psychologist with a modest office, who finds herself treating three men who believe they are Jesus Christ. Having little success in treating them separately, she has the bright idea of calling them all together for a group session, where the myth and meaning of the life of Jesus is hotly debated and almost costs Posner her own life, until a startling revelation is made.

Seth Rozin is the author of several plays, including Men of Stone (produced by Theater Catalyst, nominated for a Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play, published by Playscripts, Inc.), Missing Link (produced by InterAct Theatre Company, nominated for a Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play), Reinventing Eden (produced by InterAct), The Space Between Us (readings at Abingdon Theatre and InterAct), Black Gold (National New Play Network rolling world premieres at InterAct, Phoenix Theatre in Indianapolis, Prop Thtr in Chicago, Arts West in Seattle), Two Jews Walk Into A War… (NNPN rolling world premieres at Florida Stage, New Jersey Repertory Theatre, Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey, Shadowland Theatre, Unicorn Theatre, Merrimack Repertory Theatre, InterAct, Florida Studio Theatre, GEVA Theatre and Barter Theatre) and JC3 (developed at PlayPenn).  He has also written the book, lyrics and music for a new musical entitled A Passing Wind: The (Mostly) True Story of Joseph Pujol, about the rise and fall of the world’s greatest “fartiste,” which received its premiere at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts’ inaugural Philadelphia Inernational Festival of the Arts in 2011.  Seth is the recipient of two playwriting fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the 2007 Smith Prize, as well as a 2002 new play commission from the Foundation for Jewish Culture.  He  is the founder and Producing Artistic Director of InterAct Theatre Company in Philadelphia, where he has directed over 50 productions, including the world premieres of Thomas Gibbons’ Permanent Collection, Bee-Luther-Hatchee, Black Russian, A House With No Walls and 6221.  He served as President of the National New Play Network from 2002-2006, and currently Chairs the Philadelphia New Play Initiative.
