Join us for “Dreaming in American: Tales of Jewish Immigration,” presented by Tales of the Alchemysts Theatre.  Local professional actors and musicians perform three stories by renowned Jewish novelists: Sholem Asch, Bernard Malamud, and Anzia Yezierska. Using music and spoken word the 90-minute production explores the Jewish immigration and assimilation experience of the last century depicting dreams lost, found and transformed in circumstances that still resonate among immigrant populations today.

Sponsored, by the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, Shunpike, and the Friends of the Mercer Island Library.

In partnership with Mercer Island Arts Council and Mercer Island Historical Society.
