DOUBLE IDENTITY: THE UNTOLD STORY OF RENEE RENOIR  has many characteristics of a noir – femme fatale, detectives, fights, and plot twists and turns – but refined a bit to portray today’s woman. A mysterious death connected to a life insurance policy, a suicide, a famously named Renoir painting, corporate corruption, and embezzlements are all part of this unfolding tale.

*Enter the JCC campus on Hart Lane and stop at the guard booth. The guard will instruct you, but you’ll be driving straight ahead to the back of the campus and turning left. Look for the Austin Jewish Academy, where we’ll be on the 2nd floor in the CAA Multipurpose Room, follow the signs from the top of the stairs or the elevator.  Call Max at 512-827-9474, if you have any trouble.
