The Jewish Community Relations Council invites you to a special opportunity to enjoy a performance of Tommy J & Sally and then explore key themes focusing on the complexity of intercultural experiences with the director, cast, and community leaders.

Tommy J & Sally, written by Mark Medoff and directed by Andrea White, is a two character play on race relations, a modern twist on Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson that unleashes a tsunami of anger and emotion, leading to cleansing.
