The Jewish Queen Lear

GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY THEATER & PERFORMANCE STUDIES PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THEATER J

The Jewish Queen Lear
Jacob Gordin's Mirele Efros

English Translation by Nahma Sandrow
Directed by Adam Immerwahr

English-language world premiere!

If it's not one thing, it's your mother! Written in 1898, Gordin’s story of power and pride revolves around Mirele Efros, a wealthy widow and clever business woman who wants to find a good wife for her son. When her children turn against her, Mirele experiences a fall of Shakespearean proportions. Wildly successful in its time, Gordin’s masterpiece of Yiddish theater shines in a scintillating new English translation. Produced in partnership with Theater J and directed by Theater J's Artistic Director. Featuring Tonya Beckman, Valerie Leonard, Sasha Olinick, Sue Jin Song, and Frank X.
