Jewish Content Missing from Jewish Theater

By HUGH ORGEL
(Copyright 1982, JTA, Inc.)

TEL AVIV — The several
hundred participants from
Israel and abroad who
attended the first interna-
tional conference and festi-
val of Jewish theater in Tel
Aviv in early July, and took
part in or heard the semi-
nars and workshops, left the
meeting asking the same
question with which they
started.
They were still asking
themselves, and each other:
"Is there a Jewish theater?
If so, what is it? And why?"
It was a week of rich fare
by local and foreign —
mainly American and
British — stage groups with
presentations and dis-
cussions on Jewish and
theatrical themes. But
there was general agree-
ment that it was difficult to
pinpoint the specific Jewish
content of most of the works
offered.
Two stage groups in-
cluded in the program —
a West German group
which was to present
what was described as "A
Hasidic evening," and
the Jewish State Theater
in Poland, which was bil-
led to present a two-actor
work, "The Clock Above
Our Heads" based on a
story by Katzetnik about
the destruction of a town
in World War II — cancel-
led at the last minute be-
cause of the war in Leba-
non.
The stage presentations
from abroad, mostly with
small groups of two or three
actors, without stage decor,
included from the U.S. a
travelling Jewish theater's
program, "Coming From a
Long Distance," "The Last
Jewish Poet" and "A Dance
of Exile." The American
Jewish Theater presented
Arthur Miller's "The Price"
while the American Jewish
Repertory presented "The

Mexican Village Restaurant

Presents

Loves of Shirley Ab-
ramowitz." All received
lukewarm reviews by Is-
raeli critics.
"Letters from K" by the
London Cafe Theater was
based largely on some let-
ters written by Franz Kafka
to his fiancee Felice and was
picked out by the critics as
an example of the misuse of
the term Jewish theater.
Both Kafka and his fiancee
were Jews but there was lit-
tle Jewish content to their
communications, apart
from a vague reference to "a
visit to Palestine."
The second half of the
show was a monologue by
Kafka about his interest in
a group of Yiddish actors
who visited Prague.
The critics and news-
paper columnists showed
far greater interest in an
Anglo-Irish production
of "James Joyce and the
Israelites," first pro-
duced in London last
March and scheduled to
be presented in New
York in the spring of
1983.
This work — a "stylized
reading" presented by
Julua Pascal and written by
Belfaster Seamus Finne-
gan, who taught for four
years at the Jewish Free
School in London before
taking up full time play-
writing — could also be de-
scribed as "Jewish theater,"
but only with difficulty. It
was written as part of the
James Joyce centenary cel-

Lebanon Issue

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
First reports of 10,000 dead,
five or six times that
number wounded and
600,000 refugees after the
Israeli invasion of Lebanon
proved to be inaccurate. In
reality, not that many
people lived in the entire
area now under Israeli con-
trol.
Yet, the search for exact
information has proven
somewhat elusive. Latest
statistics show victims to-
taled less than 500 dead and
approximately 1,000
wounded. Some 30,0.00
Palestinians and 20,000
Lebanese were left home-
less.
Their re-housing before
winter is the greatest single
problem faced by the Israeli
civil aid unit, according to
Brig. Gen. David Maimon.
