Tony-nominated play by Paddy Chayefsky (three-time Academy Award-winning author of Network, Marty and The Hospital) in a newly commissioned Yiddish translation and directed by Tony Award-nominated director Eleanor Reissa.

An American retelling of the dybbuk story as a touching human comedy in which we must question – who is really possessed?

A touching human comedy in which we must question who is really possessed: the young passionate religious granddaughter of one of the elderly congregants or the successful yet cynical Manhattan lawyer?  This play captures the struggle between Jewish generations, youth and old age, cynics and believers, scientists and mystics with a moving and surprising outcome.
