Freedom Song is an extension of Beit T'Shuvah's Prevention Program and Music in Recovery. It is a powerful and original musical workshop, which highlights the historic universality of the struggle to free oneself from external oppression and internal bondage.
Using contemporary music, Freedom juxtaposes personal stories of internal conflict and family dysfunction with the story of Passover. The play not only draws parallels between being a slave in Egypt and being a slave to your addiction, but forces an audience of all ages to take a look at themselves instead of pointing the finger at everyone else. In the end, we are all enslaved to something.
Freedom Song is performed by residents and alumni of Beit T'Shuvah. This original production was written by Stu Robinson, Cantor Rebekah Mirsky, and James Fuchs and produced by Craig Taubman, Rabbi Mark Borovitz, and Harriet Rossetto.
