YANKL THE BLACKSMITH

Written by Dovid Pinski
Translated by Nahma Sandrow | Directed by Adam ImmerwahrA blue background with yellow text reading, Yiddish Theater Lab

When Yankl, the town drunk and a notorious philanderer, gets married, everyone predicts that it won’t last. Everyone, that is, except Yankl’s young wife. Can her faith in him stop Yankl from falling back into his old way of life? Can people change? And if they can, is there any guarantee that they won’t change back? This sensual and insightful exploration of the power and limitations of relationships rings just as true today as it did when it was written over 100 years ago.
