The following roles have been CAST
ROLE IS CAST. Male. A country tailor who becomes leader of the Yiddish Art Theatre of Lodz troupe. Naïve in his youth, over time as Asch’s company manager, he experiences the good and the terrible that the world has to offer, but he is never consumed by cynicism. Holds fast to his belief in the transformative power of performance, even in the Nazi-controlled ghetto where his troupe performs.
ROLE IS CAST. Male. 50s to 60s. Older Asch: late in life, Sholem has retreated entirely from public life. Bitter and cynical, he disavows his masterpiece. Peretz: Leader of a prestigious Polish Yiddish literary salon. Upper crust, educated, fussy traditionalist.
YOUNG ASCH/JOHN ROSEN/ENSEMBLE
ROLE IS CAST. Male. 20s to 30s. Young Asch: brilliant Polish Jewish playwright. Passionate. Rebellious. Hungry for change. John Rosen: Connecticut-born Jewish idealist. Has written a new translation of Asch’s original manuscript and wants to revive the play for a new generation. Will stop at nothing to see that his cultural heritage lives on in glory.
ROLE IS CAST. Male. 40s. Nakhmen: Lemml’s cousin. Traditional Jewish man and member at the Polish Yiddish literary salon. Harry Weinberger: Producer at the Greenwich Theatre. Proud to produce a play on Broadway by a fellow Jew. Against the troupe’s wishes, he censors the play to appease the audience.
ROLE IS CAST. Female. 20s to 30s. Magda: Asch’s wife. Has a discerning mind for literature and an enviable depth of feeling. Ruth: Jewish actor living in Greenwich Village. In love with Dorothee. Cast as Rivkele in the New York premiere of Asch’s play. Speaks English poorly. Outspoken, defender of her heritage. Virginia: American ingénue. Replaces Ruth as Rivkele in the New York production. Energetic, eager to please, and eager to shock her parents by playing a lesbian on stage.
ROLE IS CAST. Female. 20s to 30s. Freida: a respected German actor. She plays Manke in the Berlin production of Asch’s play. Speaks frankly and with an air of sophistication. Dorothee: Jewish actor in Greenwich Village. In love with Ruth. Cast as Manke in the New York premiere of Asch’s play. Sensitive and full of feeling. She wants to assimilate into American culture.
ROLE IS CAST. Female. 50s to 60s. Mrs. Peretz: wife of the literary lion I.L. Peretz. Protective. Strong literary opinions. Dismissive of upstart young writers. Esther: cast as Sarah in the New York production of Asch’s play. A seasoned and professional actor. She’s good at what she does and is frustrated by amateurism.
