More Press For THE KING OF HEARTS!


Ted Merwin previews THE KING OF HEARTS IS OFF AGAIN for The Jewish Week.  The play, Based on the novel by Hanna Krall and directed by Piotr Borowski, comes to La MaMa's First Floor Theatre next week!
Just as in the novel, the 70-minute stage version (which uses supertitles in English) moves back and forth in time; it is told from the perspective of an elderly Izolda who is living in Israel but is frustrated by her inability to tell her story to her children and grandchildren because she does not speak Hebrew and they do not speak Polish. Four actors play a total of 22 parts; the stage floor is painted with the image of a Polish wooden synagogue. The music is based on motifs from the works of saxophonist-composer John Zorn.
