A new adaptation of the classic story about fate and immortal love. Read More >

Leigh Gauntlett productions present a new adaptation of the classic story about fate and immortal love.

The Dybbuk is a seminal play in the history of Jewish theatre, and played an important role in the development of both Yiddish theatre and theatre in Israel. The play was based on years of research by S. Ansky, who travelled between Jewish shtetl in Russia and the Ukraine documenting folk beliefs and stories of the Hassidic Jews.

The Dybbuk resurrects the folkloric tale of superstition, fate and immortal love. A young bride, possessed by obsession, shocks her village by inviting the dybbuk to dance with her on the eve of an arranged marriage.
