Gold and award-winning playwright Kate Moira Ryan embarked on a five-year journey across the United States, interviewing over 50 Jewish women of different ages, ethnicities, and occupations. The end result is 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, a moving and humorous portrait of what makes a Jewish mother, a Jewish mother.

Directed by Karen Kohlhaas, 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother played to sold-out audiences and received critical acclaim during its New York City run, receiving a 2006 Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance. The New York Times called the show "fiercely funny, honest and moving," while the Hollywood Reporter said "Gold mixes autobiographical commentary with perfectly timed and delivered one-liners to uproarious effect. The show is riotously funny and ultimately quite moving."
