Description: Israel's acclaimed Gesher Theatre returns to New York after sensational multiple appearances at the Lincoln Center Festival with the U.S. Premiere of Enemies, A Love Story, based on a novel by Nobel Prize-winning author, Isaac Bashevis Singer. Enemies, a dark comedy enriched with despair. Almost before he knows it, Holocaust survivor Herman Broder has three wives: Yadwiga, a gentile who hid Broder from the Nazis; Masha, his beautiful, neurotic true love; and Tamara, his first wife, miraculously back from the dead. Resigned to a life of evasion, Herman navigates a Yiddish New York with a sense of impending doom.
