World Premiere Staged Reading of "A Brokhe" (in English and Yiddish) by Rokhl Kafrissen, directed by Avia Moore - as part of KlezKanada 2014

 

Set in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Brownsville, in the early 1950s, A brokhe takes on the neglected moment in American-Jewish history when thousands of Eastern European Jews arrived in the United States after the horrors of WWII. Before they were known as survivors, they were simply refugees. In A brokhe, members of the Brayndls family find themselves haunted by the wartime past and threatened by American forces they don’t quite understand. With guns, ghosts, and gangsters, A brokhe explores the role of violence in contemporary Jewish history and the Jewish response to trauma.
Luisa will play the lead role in this world premiere staged reading.
