About this show

Allen Ginsberg's poem Kaddish springs to life in this multimedia memory play created by The Adaptations Project. In the poem, a son mourns the death of his mother. He wrestles with painful memories of her battles with mental illness and the guilt of signing for her lobotomy. Kaddish is a moving story of loss, family and the grace that comes from confronting one's own mortality. Ginsberg's stream-of-conscious narrative employs the same poetic language that made him one of the finest poets of the Beat Generation.
