What it is:
This piece, inspired by Shakespeare, plumbed new depths of realism and helped shift the theatrical mores toward serious drama. Not a translation of Shakespeare's Lear, The Jewish King Lear is a self-conscious retelling of the story in 1892 that is farcical, introspective, and politically pointed all at once. Reb Dovidl Moysheles seeks to divide his estate among his three daughters before his move to Israel. The youngest, whose unflagging devotion to him is unrecognized, along with her Rabbinical student boyfriend doubt the wisdom of his plans, comparing him to that great writer Shakespeares character, King Lear. The two eldest self-centeredly misuse his largess with their respective husbands--one a Hasid, the other a Misnagid--and ultimately turn him out of their house when he returns, disenchanted, from the promised land. For years he wanders alone but for his devoted, irreverent servant. All is set to rights when the dutiful youngest, now become a doctor . cures his blindness. The production will be in English.
