In Shloyme Ansky’s landmark Yiddish play of 1914, 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, Klezmania.
