The Witches of Lublin

The storyline sounds cool. And spooky. It reminds me of reading stuff about the Inquisition; you know it rarely ends well.

Clipped from the website...
"The Witches of Lublin is based on true and little known history of klezmer musicians in Eastern Europe. Co-writer Yale Strom's research uncovered the facts that there were women klezmer musicians, and that when klezmers would play for gentile nobility, their reward could sometimes be beatings, death or even kidnappings. This history formed the springboard for this work of fiction by Strom, Schwartz and Kushner based on Jewish women's lives in 18th Century Europe, klezmer music and feminist history, with a healthy dose of magical realism thrown in. "


I would love to hear the radio drama. You can help fund this radio drama if you choose.
