Jacob Gordin’s Mirele Efros, English translation by Nahma Sandrow, Directed by Adam Immerwahr

March 13 – April 7, 2019

When her children turn against her, Mirele experiences a fall of Shakespearean proportions. Wildly successful in its time, Gordin’s masterpiece of Yiddish theater shines in a scintillating new English translation. Produced in partnership with the Georgetown University Theater and Performance Studies Program. Featuring Tonya Beckman, Valerie Leonard, Alana D. Sharp, Sue Jin Song, and Frank X.
