Israel’s celebrated Gesher Theatre will return to New York City October 3 and 4 with two performances only of its new production inspired by The Dybbuk, or Between Two Worlds written by S. Ansky 1913, in a modern version written by Roy Chen, at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College (524 West 59 Street).  The Dybbuk, arguably the most iconic play of the entire canon of Jewish drama, tells the story of a young Hasidic woman who became possessed on the eve of her wedding by the dead spirit of her beloved, a young scholar whom her parents forbade her to marry. The esteemed Gesher Artistic Director Yevgeny Arye directs the cast of 25.

The schedule of performances is October 3 and 4 at 8 pm only.

The Cherry Orchard Festival, co-founded by Maria Shclover and Irina Shabshis, is presenting this Gesher Theatre production, along with a political satire In the Tunnel, which will play October 6 and 7.  Both shows are in Hebrew with English and Russian supertitles.
