Winner! Philadelphia's Barrymore Award for Best New Play
A traveling Jewish theatrical troup encounters a government emissary when they perform their original play based on the classic story of the golem in a small town in Czarist Russian. Is the play subversive? It's performed in Yiddish though the audience hears English, so the Russian official must rely on an actor to translated for him. He is fed a humorously softened version of the witty allegory about government interference with the arts. Eventually dissension breaks out between those actors who want to give the defiant play as it is written and those who want to do an inoffensive comedy.
