Tales With A Twist

more than dreams. "There is a
pragmatic, realistic side to me .. .
up to a point I don't mind living in
a dream, but I'd like to die know-
ing someone knew what I did. Not
that 'she wished it to be, but that
it happened.' "
Urist has "very high hopes" for
her career. She is presently work-
ing on a screenplay from a novel
by Dov Beril Edelstein -called
Worlds Torn Asunder, has two
plays in production and another
in the wings.'
People who know her say she is

a "doer," a mover. Jeffrey Sellers
director of Shtetl Tales and an
actor in Blueprints says Urist's
writing "means a lot to her." He
adds that Urist "has a wonderful
sense of Jewish culture, and in
Shtetl Tales she really captures
the humor that pervades shtetl
life in the face of poverty, pogroms
and persecution."

But Urist mostly wants to give
people something to talk about.
"I'd hate for anyone to come if they
think they would miss a mes-
sage," she says. ❑
