“The Royal Court was at the centre of a row last year when it staged a play, Rare Earth Mettle, in which a manipulative character was given a Jewish name. There were accusations of antisemitism and after a report the Court apologised to the Jewish community. Now it goes further in trying to make amends and heal the hurt with this play written by Jonathan Freedland, from an idea by Tracy-Ann Oberman, which uses verbatim interviews to explore how antisemitism developed in the UK and the hold it still has in many corners of British life.”

Tickets from £12

Overview

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.

Post-Show Talk: Tue 11 Oct
A Q&A with writer Jonathan Freedland. This event is free with a ticket to that evening’s performance.
