The teleplay was first broadcast on December 14, 1959, on David Susskind's dramatic anthology program The Play of the Week. Adapted by Arnold Perl from his 1953 Off-Broadway play, the piece was drawn from writer Aleichem's tales of Jewish life in the ghettos of Eastern Europe. The broadcast featured several actors who had been blacklisted during the McCarthy Era, including Zero Mostel, Jack Gilford, Morris Carnovsky, Sam Levene, and Grant herself.For more information, visit www.paleycenter.org.
