NEW YIDDISH REP PRESENTS “THE LABOR OF LIFE” BY HANOCH LEVIN
This comedy, originally written in Hebrew, will be performed in Yiddish with projected English surtitles. It is a funny and very sad play of the missed opportunities, compromises and disillusionments demanded by the “labor of life.” Originally presented at Israel’s HaBima in June, 1989, it stands out among contemporary writings for its sardonic resonance to Israelis and Jews worldwide. This absurdist masterpiece is profound in its original Hebrew and very good in English, but it’s really funny in Yiddish. COMPLETE INFO: www.jsnyc.com/season/labor_life.htm
