TALK | A Love Letter to the Yiddish Stage: I.L. Peretz's "A Night in the Old Marketplace," with Debra Caplan
Yiddish Book Center
Amherst, MA
Share this event:


I.L. Peretz was perhaps the most theatrically exciting playwright in all Yiddish literature, with astoundingly experimental plays that broke new ground in Yiddish drama and theater. In their experimentation with form, their early adoption of cutting-edge European modernist techniques, their enigmatic endings, and their sheer technical prowess, Peretz's plays were far ahead of their time. Nowhere is this more apparent than in his 1907 play Bay nakht afn altn mark (A Night in the Old Marketplace), a modernist panoramic chronicle of the modern Jewish experience and the culmination of his vision for the Yiddish stage. Debra Caplan explores the play and its production history, with reference to the evening's contemporary staging by Frank London.
