About this show

New Yiddish Rep presents two plays by postmodern master Hanoch Levin in another Yiddish world premiere. For the first time ever, The Labor of Life and The Whore From Ohio are being performed in repertory in the three languages of the Jewish diaspora: Hebrew, Yiddish, and English. In these two groundbreaking plays, Levin sculpts a dystopian vision of family and sexuality, exposing the layers of political corruption and social injustice that pervade our lives and putting them in stark comic relief. Scoffing at nationalistic and materialistic ambitions, Levin seamlessly weaves high-minded prose and vulgar scenarios to create a brilliant tapestry of nihilistic dreams.
