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.
