Additional Info

Based on Jewish folklore, its dark implications of other-worldly forces at work in a simple village make for gripping theater. To the Chassidic Jews of Eastern Europe, a dybbuk was not legend or myth. When a girl suddenly speaks with the voice of her dead lover, the villagers realize she is possessed by a dybbuk. A rabbi defies the tormented soul and casts it out.
