Announcing a new play READING:
Simcha is a delightful play about a life-affirming journey into the world of a traveling magical storyteller, who weaves his tales of Jewish folklore. Simcha earns his bread and herring by spinning amusing morality tales for the world-weary townsfolk at a small country inn in a tiny village outside of Bilgoray, Poland in 1856.
Despite the often hard times of the impoverished shtetl-dwellers, who live at the inn, the rascally beggar has a way of charming his hard-scrabble neighbors into taking on the roles in his stories.
Reminiscent of the well-loved stories of Shalom Aleichem, Simcha's tales spread a pervasively modern patina over the seemingly familiar folktales, dealing with the verities of life, death, love, lust, needs and desires with a tenderness and insight that brings them home tellingly and with genuine humor.
To reserve your tickets for Simcha, call 323-821-2449.
Tickets prices are $25 cash or check at the door.
$27 for credit cards.
Please return here often to see WCJT’s schedule of upcoming, additional play readings and full productions.
