An evening of poetry and comedy.
The Poetry of Passover is a humorous, irreverent look at Judaism today as practiced by one Rust Belt family finding defiant joy in the face of all kinds of exodus—death, grandchildren moving away, even the dreaded non-Jewish girlfriend. Underlying it all is the steady presence of the Maxwell House Haggadah, one of the strangest and most durable corporate sponsorships in American history.
The author of the forthcoming poetry collections Continental Breakfast, (Mason Jar Press, 2019) and El Dorado Freddy's (Belt Publishing, 2020), Danny Caine’s unique and oftentimes humorous poetry speaks to a wide audience.
