A famous Yiddish tale of passion and dark spirits that has been entertaining audiences for almost 100 years is now about to do a run at the Segal Centre. The Hebrew word dybbuk literally means between two worlds and this is a tale of love involving exactly that.
Two children are betrothed to each other by their parents before they were even born. The male dies and years later the female is possessed by the Dybbuk, which is the spirit of her deceased beloved. A love is trying to exist between two people of different worlds. All this freaks out the members of the village and they waver between religious beliefs, superstitions and spiritualism.
