Through The Tulips
Written by Naomi Tessler

1 Bubby. Tulips.

A serendipitous meeting in a tulip garden in Toronto leads Noam to channel and connect Celia with her late husband. Though Noam believes his supernatural abilities are endowed by the tulips, Celia’s grandmotherly encouragement and Yiddish witticisms empower Noam to recognize and believe in his own sacred gifts.

Through the Tulips had it’s debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival in 2011.
