FEATURING YIDDISH FILMS DEPICTING LIFE IN AMERICA
JANUARY 20, 2018, 7:30 PM
TSVEY SHVESTER (TWO SISTERS) 1938

Is Two Sisters domestic tragedy or dark comedy? This family drama of personal sacrifice and devotion without end amidst the struggle to succeed in America provides a perfect vehicle for Jennie Goldstein. The screenplay, which combines slapstick humor and deep pathos, is typical of the once-vibrant Second Avenue Yiddish theater.

You don't have to speak Yiddish to enjoy them because they all have subtitles.  There is no fee to attend and light refreshments (popcorn & soda) will be available. For additional information, contact Brenda Bergstein at brenda [dot] bergstein [at] gmail [dot] com or 301-910-3520
