New Production in Birobidzhan
An article by Mikhail Shevel,
Novosti Press Agency correspond-
ent, released to us by the Soviet
embassy in Washington, states that
the production of "Ziamka Ko-
pach," a play written by Soviet
dramatist Mark Daniel in the 1930s,
had its first night in the Jewish
people's theater of Birobidzhan.
The play shows how the working
Jews fought for Soviet power'shoul-
der to shoulder with Russians,
Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Byelorus-
sians and Poles.
"Ziamka Kopach" is the fifth
production of the Birobidzhan Jew_
ish People's Theater established
three years ago, Shevel wrote. Its
first production was Sholom Alei-
hem's play "Congratulations!"
("Mazeltov"). For the staging of
M. Gershenzon's comedy "Ger-
shels Ostropoler," the theater was
awarded the honorary title of
Laureate of the All-Russian Review
of People's Theaters.
"Ziamka Kopach" was staged
by young members of the company
who had started their stage careers
at amateur groups of plants, offices
and educational establishments of
Birobidzhan. The role of Ziamka
Kopach is played by Iosif Vaisman,
a foreman of the Dalselmash har-
vester combine plant.
Mikhail Benegelsdorf, art direc-
tor of the People's Theater, said
that Sholom Aleichem's play "Tevia
the Milhiker" would be staged
"Besides," he said, "we are in-
terested in the play by the well-
known Jewish writer and dramatist
Samuil Gordon, "Balshem Street"
devoted to the anti-fascist theme
which has lost none of the urgency
