Storyline

From Elie Wiesel, one of the most important voices of our time, comes Zalmen or the Madness of God. Set in post-Stalinist Russia in a synagogue on the eve of an appearance by a Western acting troupe, Zalmen has been described as a cry of anguish about the collective guilt of €œthe silent.€ The Play was written after Wiesel's visit to the Soviet Union in 1965. Directed by Peter Levin and Alan Schneider, the play also concerns man's need for tradition as well as the futility of gestures.
