In a comfortable North London borough a left-leaning, middle class and decidedly secular Jewish couple are unsettled when their son starts wearing a kippah and praying in the conservatory. Two Thousand Years follows the family as they negotiate domestic disharmony and the politics of identity and religion.

Mike Leigh’s Two Thousand Years was first performed at the National Theatre,

London, in September 2005.
