Summary

The play takes place in the remarkable city of Vilna, a highly evolved center of civilization where Jews lived since the tenth century. In the 18th century, Vilna was the center of Jewish learning in Europe. Napoleon called it the “Jerusalem of the North”. In 1916, of 148,000 inhabitants, 61,000 were Jews (over 41% of the population!) Never before has there been any place in the diaspora world with this Jewish demographic density.

Description

“Vilna” is a play about the real people who sustained the civilized fabric of the Vilna Jewish community during its degradation in the Interwar years and its complete destruction by the Nazis in WWII. The play follows the lives of Motke Zeidel and Yudi Hirschmann as they grow up together and become central characters in the social and political events of their time.Their encounters with historical people and situations tell a story of heroic perseverance under extraordinary circumstances.
