American Football & Passover: A Playlet about Plagues (Hardcover)
This book cannot be returned.
This is a playlet about the Israelites leaving Egypt and attaining freedom from slavery as viewed through the prism of an American football contest. It is based on the exodus story of Passover as described in the Torah and the Haggadah as well as the telling of that story at the Seder commemoration of it.
This playlet features the Egyptian Royals team versus the Israelite Ragtag team. The winner gets Divine Bragging Rights in that day. The Royals are the favorites and the spread is nine. The Royals must survive all ten plagues to win. Over and under are 70.
The playlet begins with pre-game banter between announcers. It ends with post-game interviews of the principal actors. Supplementary appendices are included for Seder leaders to encourage additional thought, discussion, and learning about what happened and what it means based on a story that has been.
