A screening of ‘The Dybbuk’, discussion and Q & A with playwright Julia Pascal.
Julia’s stage productions Theresa, The Dybbuk (inspired by S. Anski’s original), and A Dead Woman on Holiday were produced in London and on the European mainland over two decades. Moving from Europe to the US, The Yiddish Queen Lear followed after she studied the importance of Yiddish theatre and film on mainstream US culture. This opened at Southwark Playhouse and starred the Warsaw Ghetto survivor Ruth Posner; a main player in her ensemble.
