2007 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Ezra will travel to Vilnius, Lithuania to participate in a month-long Yiddish language and culture program. According to Ezra's change partner Elliott, Yiddish is an endangered language, and is the home of a tradition that is both women-centered and a natural voice of those on the margins. This research/education experience in a language that has survived both genocide and assimilation will inform the writing and production of a full-length play focused on modern feminist/queer re-tellings of classic Yiddish folktales including The Dybbuk and The Golem of Prague.
