“The Whore From Ohio” by Hanoch Levin Yiddish Version

February 9 - February 23

New Yiddish Rep will present “The Whore from Ohio” by Hanoch Levin, Israel’s foremost playwright, at Theater for the New City February 9 to 23, performed in Yiddish with projected surtitles. This black comedy, which deals memorably with ultimate questions of fantasy, lust and mortality, is one Levin’s most famous plays. It is translated into Yiddish from the original Hebrew by Eli Rosen. Gara Sandler directs.

The play presents an old beggar, running from death, who goes to a whore and spends all his savings, to the horror of his grasping beggar of a son.  It is packed with sharp humor on the ultimate absurdity of life and its desires. It will be acted by David Mandelbaum as the old beggar, Eli Rosen as the son and Malky Goldman as the eponymous hooker.
