In Shloyme Ansky’s landmark Yiddish play of 1 a young bride is possessed by the ghost of the man she was meant to marry—a Dybbuk.

 Love, death, and ghost stories, join us—if you dare—for a night of haunting tales about possessions, obsessions and Dybbuk discoveries.

 Dybbuk features a dream team of writers reading short, original stories, that evoke the mysterious possibilities beneath our usual realities: journalist Michael Gawenda and his musician son, Husky; storyteller and writer Arnold Zable; playwright Jessica Bellamy; performer and academic Yoni Prior; and comedian Josh Glanc. Also featuring the klezmer ‘gypsy swing’ band, Klezmania. 

A wild night of unexpected stories, Jewish dances, online dating and yiddishkiet, for three nights only this performance promises to bring the whole mishpocha* together.

* An entire family network.
