Golem - Edinburgh Fringe 2017

Sweet Grassmarket - Grassmarket 4

When we feel powerless, we create monsters – and then? It’s the Passover, a young girl has gone missing and the Jews know they will be blamed. The Blood Libel is coming to Prague. Rabbi Loew, leader of the community, creates a creature from the mud of the riverbank – a being of enormous strength. But can the old Rabbi control his own creation? Golem: the moving, funny and electrifying story of the original Frankenstein. 'A performance laced with human poignancy and Hasidic humour, it is a splendidly interpreted fable with chilling contemporary resonance' (John Agard). ***** (Brighton Argus).
