CAN A SHTETL HIDE FROM HISTORY?
A genuine Polish shtetl disappears into dense woods. Its happy isolation self-destructs when an angry wife runs away. Her husband chases her. They never return. The shtetl outcast is sent to find them. Instead the world finds the town time forgot. The town’s existence makes the news. Once discovered, Insiders and Outsiders vie to handle the reemerged town. Setting and characters arrive in great hilarity with sound historical dilemmas. All are welcome. RSVP to Ellen for the Zoom link.
