Additional Info

Here is a new theatrical form the author calls an eurythmy. It is a system of movements to words with the actors wearing full face masks. The piece may also be done as a conventional play without masks. The story of Judah and his daughters, one legitimate and raised as an orthodox Jew and the other illegitimate and raised as a Roman Catholic, is a family tragedy. Both girls fall in love with the same man, a gentile. The tug of war that ensues destroys Judah and his daughter. The heart felt conclusion brings tears to the eyes of all who see this sensitive work.
