This show is even funnier than the e-mail exchange that purportedly inspired it. As Blewt! Productions founder Steve Gadlin tells it, a young Kenyan playwright, Victor Gido, contacted him in 2009, offering original scripts. After some back and forth, they agreed that Gido would write one to order for $50, based on Gadlin's premise: "A millionaire named Quack Quack Quimby has forgotten the true meaning of the Jewish holiday Tu Bishvat. His daughter goes to great lengths to remind him of its meaning, and make him happy once again." The Nairobi Project begins with Gadlin at his laptop, trying to decide whether Gido's email is legitimate, includes a video of cast auditions, and ends with a performance of Gido's one-act, The Price. An engaging and original concept. --Marissa Oberlander
