Description

" Subtitled 'A Klezmer piece', The Fourth Gate was is based on traditional Hassidic stories. This funny and multi-faceted play depicts a lost world where the celestial and the everyday go hand in hand, where poverty and ignorance may be signs of ultimate richness and wisdom, where searching for your mentor/spiritual leader can be a life-long goal. In this small Ukrainian community, time and space seem to be penetrable and reversible, reality and myths can be easily confused. This version is from a literal translation by Ildiko Noemi Nagy and Katalin Trencsenyi, and is part of the National Theatre's Channels (Hungary) season of rehearsed readings, initiated by the NT Studio and performed in the Cottesloe Theatre in June 2004."
