Overview

21+ It's Purim, let's get wild! Celebrate a world turned upside down; a would-be genocide that became a day of joyous festivities. Help us commemorate the defeat of Haman's evil plot of hatred as recorded in the book of Esther. This year's celebration will be made possible in partnership with Repair The World: Baltimore, IMPACT Baltimore and Parkway Theatre, Baltimore. There will be an optional showing of For Your Consideration at 7pm followed by an evening of fun filled festivities with food, dancing, music by Daniel Biltmore, and good company. In For Your Consideration, debut feature director Jay Berman (Christopher Guest), steers cast and crew through a typically tumultuous independent film Home for Purim, an intimate period drama about a Jewish family's turbulent reunion on the occasion of the dying matriarch's favorite holiday. When Internet-generated rumors begin circulating that three of Purim's stars--faded luminary Marilyn Hack (Catherine O'Hara), journeyman actor and former hot dog pitchman Victor Allan Miller (Harry Shearer), and ingenue Callie Webb (Parker Posey)--may be perpetrating Award-worthy performances, a rumble of excitement rattles the cast. The party will begin at 9pm, following the conclusion of the film. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
