Never heard of Hanoch Levin?

Not surprising. Most people outside of Israel and Europe haven’t, He is arguably the greatest Israeli playwright to date, and has won every literary prize Israel has to offer. In an article about Levin and Yiddish Dan Friedman, executive editor of The Forward, wrote: “His friend Viteck Tracz always used to joke that Hanoch didn’t write his plays, he just wrote them down in Hebrew from his mother’s Yiddish.”

It is undeniable that these two plays are wonderful in Yiddish, in a way that the original Hebrew, although poetic, does not approach.

I have provided a list of links about our productions and about Levin himself here.
