Join us for this unique event at the York City Screen on Wednesday 15th November 1-2pm. Booking essential….
Award-winning actor, writer and journalist, Tracy-Ann Oberman, is in York to take on the role of Shylock in the stunning new interpretation of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice re-set in the East End of London in 1936 from 14th-18th November at the Theatre Royal.
Rabbi Dr Elisheva Salamo recently moved to York to become the first Rabbi to live within the city walls since medieval times and to lead the city’s small but thriving Liberal Jewish Community.
Both find themselves cast in roles traditionally played by men. What is the significance of this inversion of roles? What does it say about power and perceptions of drama and religion? What have they both learned from the process and what can they learn from each other?
Tracy-Ann and Rabbi Elisheva will explore together Judaism, feminism and antisemitism in this unique opportunity to hear them in conversation with each other and our audience.
All proceeds will go to support the York Liberal Jewish Community
