New York City
Pawnshop Accordions tells the story of a cynical EMT, a mute accordionist, a sinister Albanian, and a prophetic schizophrenic struggle to protect one another. This latest play from Jonathan Wallace is a hallucinatory drama of community and violence in New York’s netherworld.
Professional accordionist and clown Gina Samardge will play Zaida, the mute accordionist, and will perform live accordion music during the play, including traditional Eastern European and klezmer songs and original compositions.
