*indicates member of Actors' Equity. Granada is an Equity-approved showcase.

It's been 500 years since the Jews were expelled from Spain, and the King is finally ready to make amends. A lavish ceremony is held. A young Egyptian Jew with a notable lineage arrives to take part. The young Prince poses for photos. The pomegranate juice flows. But is this Spain? Is Spain populated by talking bears, letters carried on the wind, resurrections of medieval philosophers ... assassinations? This could very well be the beginning of the Messianic Age.

Bringing together characters and stories from Sephardic Jewish folklore and culture, Granada draws on a centuries-old tradition to create a tender, bizarre, and funny look at a people separated by continents but united by a state of exile.

The Access Theater Gallery has limited accessibility. For accessibility information, please contact info@polybeandseats.org.
