Written by S. Ansky and directed by Seattle Jewish Theater Company artistic director Art Feinglass, The Dybbuk is regarded as the greatest classic of Jewish drama. Deeply rooted in Jewish folklore, it tells a story of love caught between two worlds and a Jewish community dealing with mysterious, otherworldly forces.
Ansky wrote The Dybbuk during the turbulent years of 1912-17. The idea for the play came to him as he led a Jewish folklore expedition through the Jewish communities of the Pale of Settlement in Eastern Europe. The expedition was cut short by the outbreak of World War I.
Ansky, who died in 1920, never lived to see it produced in Russian, Yiddish, or Hebrew. The play, however, was destined to become one of the most produced in the history of Jewish theater. Ansky’s fascination with rabbinical wisdom, spirituality, and Jewish folklore are clearly evident in The Dybbuk.
The Seattle Jewish Theater Company, now in its seventh year, brings classic and contemporary Jewish theater to the Seattle area. You can now purchase tickets at Brown Paper Tickets. More info at SeattleJewishTheater.com.
