PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Rabbi Judah Loew, spiritual leader of Prague's Jewish Ghetto in the late 16th century, is about to do what now man outside of fables has done - create life. Armed with the mystical powers of the Kabbalah, Loew creates a golem, a giant, a powerful man of clay, in order to protect the Jews of Prague. But will he be able to control the monster he has created?
Riveting and frightening, The Golem explores the fine line between self-defense and revenge, and the devastating consequences of crossing it. From a legendary Jewish folktale, former Atlantan Andrew Ordover has crafted a compelling cautionary tale that resonates in our own time.
"This is a work of considerable passion and clarity." - Time Out New York

REVIEWS
The Experts Say...

Southern Voice
by Jim Farmer
September 22, 2000
Jim had mixed reviews on this one. "After its creaky start, "The Golem" becomes absorbing and tense." He praised the cast for an outstanding job.


Creative Loafing
by Curt Holman
September 09, 2000
Curt sez "The Jewish Theatre of the South offers a rich and thoughtful production of the script that, like the powerful but shambling creation of the title, has a tendency to lumber along, especially in the first act."
