Haaretz wrote: Unquestionably the representative play of Yiddish Theater.

If it s not one thing, it s your mother! Written in 1898, Gordin s story of power and pride revolves around Mirele Efros, a wealthy widow and clever business woman who wants to find a good wife for her son. When her children turn against her, Mirele experiences a fall of Shakespearean proportions. Wildly successful in its time, Gordin s masterpiece of Yiddish theater shines in a scintillating new English translation. Produced in partnership with the Georgetown University Theater and Performance Studies Program. Featuring Tonya Beckman, Valerie Leonard, Sasha Olinick, Sue Jin Song, and Frank X.
