What do you do when your dad suddenly dies? If you’re Jewish, you go home for shiva—seven days of ritual mourning. So Cammy’s back from New York City and living in Jersey for a week. And her mom, her childhood BFF, her high school crush, and the rabbi are all there waiting for her. Not to mention the sexy Jersey Bro invading her dreams. Will she make it out alive? After Dad is a raw, raunchy comedy about grief, coming home, and figuring out how to live your life after you lose the person you loved most.

Cary Gitter is a member of the Ensemble Studio Theatre’s (EST’s) Obie Award-winning Youngblood playwrights’ group. His play How My Grandparents Fell in Love was a New York Times Critic’s Pick as part of EST’s 36th Marathon of One-Act Plays and aired on the public radio show Playing on Air. He is the recipient of a 2017 New Play Commission from the EST/Sloan Project. Cary’s plays have been developed at the Berkshire Playwrights Lab, the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, EST, the Flea Theater, New Jersey Repertory Company, the Tank, and elsewhere. He has been a two-time O’Neill semifinalist and a Jewish Playwriting Contest finalist. He has an upcoming residency at Tofte Lake Center in Minnesota, and his work will soon be published in The Best Men’s Stage Monologues 2018 (Smith and Kraus). BFA, MA: NYU
