About

In Obie Award-winning playwright Deborah Margolin's controversial new play, we witness imagined jail conversations between Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff and Solomon Galkin, a poet and Holocaust survivor. In a high moral showdown, these two Jewish men banter about women, baseball, the Talmud, human decency, kindness, and the story of Abraham and Isaac, revealing much about greed and the forces that led us to the Great Recession. According to DC Theatre Scene, "we know the what already; in Imagining Madoff, we seek the why."

Approximate running time: 1 hour and 35 minutes with no intermission.

Reminder: Due to the intimate nature of the production and limited seating, house management will not be able to seat patrons after curtain time.
