Yom Hashoah 2018

Monday 22nd October 2018

Wednesday 11th April 2018

We interview Director Katharina Reinthaller and Programmer Eva Burke.

First performed eighty years ago, Bertolt Brecht’s chilling one-act play, The Jewish Wife, is a chronicle of everyday German life at the dawn of the Nazi regime. As the Third Reich tightens its grip, relationships contort and fear and suspicion penetrate every layer of society.

Katharina Reinthaller directs this exclusive performance with actors:
Susanne Fiore and Peter Halpin
plus pianist Ilan Lazarus.
Followed by a short Yom Hasho’ah ceremony led by Rabbi Roni Tabick and singer Aaron Isaac.
