Short Stories Live: The Jewish Imagination, Part 2
The 2011-12 season premiere of Short Stories Live picks off where last year's left off, with more excerpts from classic short stories capturing the Jewish imagination. Some of Seattle's favorite actors will read from works including the part-fable, part-fantasy "The Angel Levine," which explores Bernard Malamud's signature theme of brotherhood; "Getzel the Monkey," by the prolific Polish writer Isaac Bashevis Singer, whose recurring theme is the rocky and often unsuccessful transition from old to new; and "For the Relief of Unbearable Urges" by Nathan Englander, selected as one of "20 Writers for the 21st Century" by The New Yorker. Directed by Christine Sumption. Presented by Town Hall with A Contemporary Theatre.
