Come listen to a dramatic reading of Sir Arnold Wesker’s electrifying play, Blood Libel, which was commissioned to celebrate the opening of the Norwich Playhouse in England.
Set in 1144 Norwich, England, the play dramatizes the first appearance of an urban legend that has come to be known as a “blood libel.” Imagining that Jews kill innocent Christian children, the blood libel is a horrible invention, and Arnold Wesker’s play captures dramatically this moment when the blood libel was first created.
Place: Beth Abraham Synagogue, 305 Sugar Camp Circle, Dayton
