Staged reading of Bernard Kops’ play featuring live klezmer music by Yair Schleider.

1881. A travelling Yiddish repertory theatre company performing the works of Shakespeare encounter a series of obstacles as they journey through the Russian provinces on their way to Minsk: the death of their horse, the theft of their box office takings by their own accountant and constant in-fighting amongst the actors. This staged reading of Bernard Kops’ play is directed by Pamela Howard and woven through with live klezmer music by Yair Schleider.
