My Father Is A Tetris Game

written by Jonathan A. Goldberg


My Father is a Tetris Game is smart as hell, funny, wise, and goofy by turns —a dead serious surreal journey to the East in search of Dad himself. Wonderful all-girl band of actors, a simple and beautiful production, and language that twists and soars. Jonathan A. Goldberg is the real thing. If you care at all about important new voices for the American stage, see his work.
— Len Jenkin

My Father Is A Tetris Game is the story of a young American girl who travels to Russia during the cold war because she believes her dead father is communicating to her through her Tetris game. Different plot threads twist, combine, bleed, and branch off from each other as this surrealist play explores our need to find answers in a random world. Presented with strong images, lyrical and rich dialogue, and engaging visual projects, this surrealist tragedy is both moving and provoking.
