A girl from a Jewish shtetl is possessed by the dybbuk (spirit) of a dead gypsy musician. Speaking though her mouth, he simultaneously terrorises and captivates the community with ribaldries and an exposure of the villagers’ secret hypocrisies. Attempts to exorcise the dybbuk are met with taunts and hypnotic Klezmer music from his violin. A carnival of anarchic dancing ensues until they discover that another dybbuk – this time a dead prostitute – has also taken up residence inside the hapless girl. The spirits joust for sole occupancy, until one villager suggests that they make an ideal marital couple.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
