OY! is a collection of eight 10-minute comedies, each illustrating the meaning of a Yiddish word -- with story lines including the untold stories of Eve and Adam, Einstein's demanding mother, the divorce trial of God and the human, the use of unkosher food as an aphrodisiac, and three men in a sauna who communicate using only the word "oy." Appealing to audiences of all faiths and all backgrounds, OY! is a tribute to the absurdity and comedy of the condition universal to everyone: that of being human. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Written by Robert Ardrey
Originally presented as a staged reading by the ReGroup, due to the overwhelming response, they are bringing it back.
Though never a hit in America, after the Group Theatre’s original 1939 production, the play became a smash hit in Europe. During the WWII London bombings, it was the one play that continued to play in London’s West End. It moved from Theatre to Theatre, and audiences sat enraptured with their gas masks in their laps. After the end of WWII, the American government mounted it in the newly freed Germany, and it was cast solely with concentration camp survivors.
Featuring Allie Mulholland, Linda Glick, Emily Ciotti, Maurya Scanlon, Pete McElligott, Shelley Valfer, Timothy Weinert, Mateo Prendergast, Andrew Criss, Daniel Hainsworth, and Jon McCormick. Directed by Nic Davies.
