Moira Blumenthal continues to expand the momentum of Jewish Theatre in Sydney with our second stage a program designed to develop new ideas and new scripts derived from the community.
Over June, July and August our second stage will bring 3 dramatized play-readings to the stage. The first is a play in further development, The Making of Sasha Fein by Rob Selzer; and the birth of 2 new plays her brilliant career by Alice Spigelman and Letters From a Troubled Pastby Vic Alhadeff.
The first play is The Making of Sasha Fein that sees Sandy Fein who for sixty years has kept a secret, a secret he is determined will follow him to the grave. All that changes the day he buries his elderly mother and some of her old mementos threaten to expose the truth. At the same time, his granddaughter persuades him to be part of her family-tree project and picks at the threads of his past as well as the strings of his heart. A story of shame, loss, intergenerational ties, and the unbreakable bonds of family. The Making of Sasha Fein is a beautiful telling of how a dark secret can pull a family apart or bring them back together.
