What I Thought I Knew, A New Play by Alice Eve Cohen

Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company’s What I Thought I Knew pulls back the curtain on women’s health and the American healthcare system in a daring one-woman play

Alice, an infertile Jewish woman in her forties, discovers a hard lump in her abdomen. After months of tests, a doctor finally determines that she is pregnant. Based upon true events and the book hailed by Oprah as “darkly hilarious…an unexpected bundle of joy,” this heartfelt journey through a high-risk pregnancy and the American healthcare system is told with honesty and humor. In this solo production, Kim Kivens (recently seen at MJTC in Natasha and the CoatHershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, and Church & State) will play nearly forty different characters. Directed by Jennie Ward (Collected Stories). Learn more about the production HERE.
