Kaddish

Starring: Jake Goodman

Directed by: Barbara Lanciers

Produced by: Philip Arnoult - Center for International Theatre Development

Kaddish, culling its name from the Jewish prayer of mourning, is a stage adaptation of Nobel Prize-winning, Hungarian writer Imre Kert├ęsz's novel, Kaddish for an Unborn Child. Kaddish is an exploration of ritual, loss, and unrelenting inner conflict in which the beleaguered central character mourns the absence of the child he never fathered during his failed marriage; his mantra being a refusal to bring a child into a world where horrors like the Holocaust can occur. As he attempts to reach the final Amen of the Kaddish, he weaves a brutally honest, deeply personal, stream of consciousness web of the unseen casualties of war, political corruption, Jewish identity, and the humor of living. Kaddish is the first ever staging of this magnificent novel, an eloquent meditation on human vulnerability and strength told through the eyes of a survivor of Hitler's "Final Solution."
