SHAMEIT’SSHABBAT

The Jewish Chronicle - - ARTS&BOOKS -

NEW ZEALAND theatre com­pany Shaky Isles Theatre is stag­ing a re­hearsed read­ing of Tom McCrory’s play Faith at South Lon­don’s Pa­cific Theatre on May 2. The play is about a 15-year-old girl called Ruth who goes to New Zealand as a refugee fol­low­ing the Holo­caust. Now aged 72, Ruth guides us on “a jour­ney of faith, ex­plor­ing what sur­vives across the gen­er­a­tions”. The read­ing co­in­cides with the forth­com­ing Yom Hashoah, and pro­ducer Sandi Good­win hopes JC read­ers can make it. Shame then that May 2 is a Fri­day. Note­book asked if it was pos­si­ble to swap the date with one of the other read­ings. “No chance of chang­ing date, un­for­tu­nately,” she replied. “Les­son for next time, huh!” Well, quite.
