From Gesher Theater, one of Israel’s most prominent and award-winning theaters since its founding by Russian immigrants to Tel Aviv in 1991, comes a new take on an old story.
Hanan, a poor Yeshiva student deeply involved in Kabbalah, dies suddenly after learning that his beloved Lea is pledged to another man. His troubled soul – stuck between two worlds, neither dead nor alive – cannot find peace. Lea is chased by his image. Madness ensues. Is it a sickness? It is love? It is a dybbuk?
This new version, written by Gesher Theater’s Dramaturg Roy Chen, combines comedy and tragedy, mysticism and psychology, danger and love, in a captivating production, richly envisioned for the Israeli stage, which will leave you spellbound.
