A Dybbuk, CU Fringe Festival

fringe-logo-text-trans3

What would you do be with the love of your life? Come back from the dead or maybe even possess the body of your love?

The Dybbuk is a famous Yiddish play and has been produced all over the world in many different languages. In this production there is a direct emphasis on the satire hidden in the script. Gender roles, arranged marriages, gay love and divine soul mates (Bashert) will all be explored on the stage. The story in the Dybbuk evolves around a divine pact made between two close friends to marry their children to one another, as they themselves could not be married in the same way. The lovers of theatre will really enjoy this show where “Romeo & Juliet” meets “The Exorcist.”

Directed by Tzvi Darling, Jewish Studies Senior at the University of Colorado. Adaptation by Tony Kushner. Performances are free and open to the public: Saturday, April 27th, 7:30-9:30 PM in the University Theatre Mainstage, and Sunday, April 28th, 10:00-12:00 PM in the University Theatre Mainstage.
