Non-AJ Event

The InterAct Theatre Company in Philadelphia is presenting "The Last Yiddish Speaker" at the Drake Theater from March 29 through April 21. Here's the synopsis: In the years following a successful January 6th insurrection, a white supremacist regime has come into power. Paul and his teenage daughter, Sarah, live under the radar in a small town upstate as Christian-passing, despite being Jews who fled New York City. When an ancient Yiddish-speaking woman arrives on their doorstep, Paul and Sarah are forced to decide between fleeing again or fighting for their faith, their heritage and their identity. Tickets are $17 but from April 5 through April 7, a "pay as you can" policy is in effect. Find out more here. (One of the directors was here at AJ for the Vigil for Israel.)
