Griffin Theatre Company presents
By Jessica Bellamy
A celebration of food, family and feminism
Shabbat Dinner comes to Griffin’s Stables Theatre 10 – 15 September 2018.
In Jewish tradition, a new day begins in the evening. That is why Shabbat, the day of rest, is welcomed at sundown. Take a seat around the Bellamy family dining table, set with their finest glassware and a few charmingly mismatched spoons. In this unique (and not so traditional) dinner-turned-performance, the rituals and customs of a Shabbat dinner are recreated. Bread is broken. Family stories are offered. As the night unfolds, a community is built and then dismantled. Written by award-winning playwright Jessica Bellamy and directed by Anthony Skuse, Shabbat Dinner weaves together poetic storytelling, live music and Bellamy’s best attempt at rekindling the taste of her Baba’s borscht.
