This fall, HTG will bring the classic Yiddish tale of “The Dybbuk” to the stage.
Why The Dybbuk – a play written a century ago that takes place in a part of Old World Europe where superstition and the supernatural run rampant? Because that is not what the play is about. The Dybbuk is a love story. And love is one of the few truly universal aspects of life. The Dybbuk is a testament to the lengths we will go for love; it says even death will not stand in the way of true love. Additionally, this play addresses the idea of predestiny. The Dybbuk answers: the bond that brings together two souls who are destined for each other is stronger than death itself.
This play is dark, disturbing and haunting and speaks of a time and place that is somewhere beyond this reality. The alternative title of this play – Between Two Worlds – accurately represents the setting for this play: that strange place between dreaming and waking. It is in this environment where love can overcome all boundaries – even death – and where fear and awe of the Other World go hand in hand.
