The Tenth Man, the Tony-nominated play by Paddy Chayefsky (the three-time Academy Award-winning author of Network, Marty, and The Hospital) presented in a newly commissioned Yiddish translation, directed by Tony Award-nominated director Eleanor Reissa.
“This play addresses the topic of spiritual crisis with astonishing warmth, humor, and depth, ”said Zalmen Mlotek, Artistic Director at the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, “such a work is truly fitting for inclusion in our Season of Spiritual Resistance, as we explore spiritual struggle on the stage, in all its complexity and variety.” “NYTF is proud to bring Paddy Chayefsky’s stimulating and touching work of art back to New York City, and for the first time anywhere, in Yiddish,” added Dominick Balletta, Executive Director at the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene. “This production promises to leave audiences rethinking the ways they look at faith, no matter where their beliefs lie.”
Director and translator Eleanor Reissa’s directing credits include: Those Were The Days (Broadway), God of Vengeance (New Yiddish Rep; Off-Broadway) and Desperate Measures (Off-Broadway). Her acting credits include: Indecent (Broadway), God of Vengeance (New Yiddish Rep; Off-Broadway), and Those Were the Days (Broadway).
The Tenth Man is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc. a Concord Theatricals Company.
