“Rootless Cosmopolitans” is the timely and thought-provoking new black comedy from esteemed Jewish/Australian playwright, Ron Elisha. The play explores the polarising power of social media, antisemitism, and the minefield of identity politics.

“Rootless Cosmopolitans” centres around esteemed Artistic Director Ira Brot, who in six short years has transformed a small, struggling theatre company into an international sensation. Ira has the world at his feet – money, influence, and creative freedom – but one little tweet threatens to derail his perfect life.
Add to this his Jewish convert wife, a vaguely antisemitic theatre company Chairperson and an ambitious Assistant Director waiting in the wings, and you have the ingredients for the oldest of all culture wars, played out on a modern stage. Ira must also deal with a complex relationship with his mother who, although long dead, is alive and kvetching inside his head.

Ron Elisha’s plays have been performed all over the world, including Israel, throughout Europe and the USA. His previous play “Anne Being Frank” recently won two Broadway World Awards for it’s season in New York.
