If it’s not one thing, it’s your mother! Written in 1898, Gordin’s story of power and pride revolves around Mirele Efros, a wealthy widow and clever business woman who wants to find a good wife for her son. When her children turn against her, Mirele experiences a fall of Shakespearean proportions. Wildly successful in its time, Gordin’s masterpiece of Yiddish theater shines in a scintillating new English translation. Produced in partnership with the Georgetown University Theater and Performance Studies Program. Featuring Tonya Beckman, Valerie Leonard, Sasha Olinick, Sue Jin Song, and Frank X.
