WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Written in the fast-paced rhythms of the Yiddish theater, Clown Show for Bruno celebrates the great Polish writer and artist Bruno Schulz who was murdered on the streets of his home town by a Nazi officer in 1942. Combining vaudevillian wordplay and Mednick's acclaimed lyricism, Clown Show examines the relationship between the creative and destructive aspects of human existence within the historical context of the Holocaust. Funny and harrowing, the play offers a gripping portrait of human fortitude and Jewish spirituality in the face of unspeakable horror.
