A new adaptation of one of the central plays of Yiddish history. Apostate, believer, lover, teacher—Uriel Acosta is all of them. And he is too much for the Jews of Amsterdam in the 17th century. When they excommunicate him a struggle ensues in the soul of every thinking, feeling being. Uriel challenges us all.
