Blut und Blintzes: A Yiddish Vampire Radio Play
Tue April 20 @ 19:30 - 20:30
Do you like Yiddish? How about vampires? Have you re-watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer upwards of four times but wondered what it would be like if it took place in Montreal and the vampires were quirky Jewish girls who had a mediocre knowledge of Halachic law?
Since you definitely answered yes to all of these questions, come on down to the table read of Blut und Blintzes (Blood and Blintzes), a new in-development Yiddish radio play, for a casual night of fun. The play follows Chayka Moskovitch, a recently turned vampire in Montreal who struggles to square her Jewish identity with her newfound bloodlust-spoiler alert: blood definitely isn’t kosher! Filled with irreverent halachic musings and gags on Montreal weather, Blut und Blintzes will answer the rabbis’ greatest questions, fulfill every young Jewish girl’s vampiric dreams and do so with English subtitles. You’ll be murdered with laughter!
The table read of Part I of Blut und Blintzes will be introduced by director & playwright Rebecca Turner. Following the performance, there will be a Q&A with Rebecca Turner and the cast.
