About this show

Defense of Prague is a new play by Sophia Murashkovsky, directed by Leslie Lee, which is a story from her dreams. A Tsiganka (Gypsy-sorceress), symbolically named Prague, finds work in a sacrilegious cabaret which is housed in a synagogue near a crowded old Jewish cemetery. There she falls under the power of its diabolical MC, who is said to be an actual descendant of the Rabbi who built the mythical 17th century Golem of Prague. Having taken him as her pimp, she learns that he had corrupted her Gypsy mother's soul as well, leaving her to wither on the streets of Prague. The Golem, protector of the ghetto, is again on the loose, her creator - the pimp - having lost control of his creation.
