WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Rachel Calof is based on a pragmatic memoir, written completely in Yiddish by Rachel Calof. It tells the story of her brave adventure across the ocean as a Jewish picture bride from Russia to North Dakota in 1894 to marry a man she had never met before. Kate Fuglei powerfully enacts Calof's courage to come to a new land, her sense of humor, her capacity to endure brutal hardships and her quest for a home of her own. Rachel Calof takes the audience on a journey filled with challenges and pleasant surprises with Calof's transformative spirit and a genuine love for life.
