Jews have been talked about a lot in recent years. Now they get to speak for themselves.
A theatrical inquiry into an ancient prejudice explored through words, song…and a dose of English irony. Using verbatim interviews, journalist Jonathan Freedland has created a searing and incisive play looking at the roots and damning legacy of antisemitism in Britain – especially in those places where you’d least expect it.
Interviewees include Luciana Berger, Stephen Bush, Margaret Hodge, Howard Jacobson, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Dave Rich, Simon Schama and more.
From an idea by Tracy-Ann Oberman. Written by Jonathan Freedland. Co-created by Vicky Featherstone, Tracy Ann Oberman & Audrey Sheffield.
