Dramatic Reading and Discussion of I.B. Singer’s short story, “One Night in Brazil” preceded by a delicious veggie potluck Shabbat dinner
Nobel Prize Winner in Literature, I.B. Singer
Program Description: After a delicious Friday evening potluck Shabbat dinner we will enjoy a rich Jewish cultural experience. The Tales of the the Alchemysts Theatre, a local performance company committed to bringing provocative and entertaining Jewish literature, will give a dramatic reading of the short story, “One Night In Brazil” by the Nobel Laureate, Isaac Bashevis Singer. This story takes us back in time to Rio de Janeiro, post Holocaust, where we meet a curiously skeptical New York writer and an eccentric Polish woman who’s convinced that the swelling in her belly is her lost lover disguised as a dybbuk. Intrigue, humor, and mayhem lurk on the horizon! The dramatic reading will be followed by a group discussion facilitated by the actors and Rabbi Dov Gartenberg
Come enjoy a delightful Shabbat and Jewish experience and a chance to meet new faces.
