YIDDISH? by Peca Ștefan

23 October | 18:00 – Jewish State Theatre

“Yiddish?” was inspired by interviews taken by the play director Andreea Vălean and playwright Peca Ștefan of former actors of the State Jewish Theatre, who now live in Bucharest and Tel Aviv, by people in the public, both from Romania and Israel, who watched some of the greatest performances ever of the State Jewish Theatre, as well as the study of rich materials from the theatre archives.
