Tickets Still Available for Yiddish Theatre Production of ‘A Bintel Brief’

Hello theatre lovers!

We are pleased to inform you that there are still a few tickets available to see A Bintel Brief, the latest offering from the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre (DWYT) players.

The performance will take place on Monday, Oct. 15, 2018 at 6 p.m. at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montreal.

Tickets are $90 (attendees will receive a partial tax receipt). 

A joint collaboration between B’nai Brith Canada and Montreal’s Segal Centre for Performing Arts, A Bintel Brief promises to be an entertaining and unforgettable evening of riveting Yiddish theatre.

A Bintel Brief (“A Bundle of Letters”) is based on letters written by Jewish immigrants to the editor of the Yiddish newspaper Forverts (The Jewish Daily Forward) in the early 20th century. From romantic quandaries, family quarrels, and the challenges of assimilation to the hardships, tragedies, and disillusionment they faced following their arrival in the New World, these letters reflect the daily realities of Eastern European Jewish immigrants adapting to their new lives in North America.

Told through comedy, drama, and song, A Bintel Brief presents the true life stories of strangers in a new land and serves as a poignant reminder that the immigrant experience is universal and timeless.

Please share this invitation with your friends and help us make this a SOLD OUT performance!

See you at the theatre!
