The Jewish King Lear

directed by Edward Chemaly

Jacob Gordin 

In Ruth Gay's English translation of Jacob Gordin's groundbreaking 1892 Yiddish drama, Reb Dovidl Moysheles divides his estate among his three daughters before his move to Israel, leaving himself vulnerable to the same pitfalls of betrayal and madness as Shakespeare's Lear, but with an updated twist that allows for reconciliation and redemption.
