WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Adapted for the first time from the original Yiddish, Peretz Hirshbein's The Amulet takes place in a world of seers and miracle-workers, where people are expected to suffer in silence. They wear amulets to protect them, waiting passively for the promise of future happiness. The Amulet is the story of a girl who refuses to wait. The play's unusual style combines elements of Greek Tragedy, Russian Avant Garde, and the Old Testament. Isaac Butler directs.
