The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

WHEN Jane My­ers en­joyed a night of theatre with fam­ily and friends, the venue was un­usual — her house. The Edgware Syn­a­gogue mem­ber was one of 30 peo­ple cho­sen to take part in Theatre Royal Strat­ford East’s Home Theatre project.

Per­form­ers de­vise a tai­lor-made one-per­son show based on the sto­ries of the host fam­ily.

Ci­ti­zenKanya by Jack Brown was partly in­spired by the ex­pe­ri­ences of Mrs My­ers’s late fa­ther, Albo Habib, whose fam­ily fled Libya in the wake of the Six-Day War. “It was amaz­ing,” she said. “We started in the gar­den, moved to the kitchen and ended in the lounge.”

The pro­duc­tion, which was “funny and poignant” she said, can be seen on Youtube. Jane My­ers with Jack Brown
