The Seattle Jewish Theater Company will present the Seattle premiere of The Dybbuk, regarded as the greatest classic of Jewish drama, at venues throughout the Seattle area in April and the first week of May. The Dybbuk, written by S. Ansky and directed by SJTC artistic director Art Feinglass, is set in a village in Russia in the 19th century. Rooted in Jewish folklore, the play tells a story of love caught between two worlds and a community dealing with mysterious, otherworldly forces.
Rehearsals will be held in Seattle on two weekday evenings and on Sunday afternoons in January, February and March. Cast members will not need to be at every rehearsal. Cast members do not need to be Jewish.
