Part of Manchester Jewish Museum Synagogue Scratch, actor, director and playwright Julia Pascal is bringing a brand new play A Manchester Girlhood to Cheetham Hill.
Julia Pascal was the first female director at the National Theatre on the South Bank with her stage adaptation of Dorothy Parker’s prose and poetry. As a granddaughter of Manchester Jews her creative work has focused on exploring untold Jewish stories, particularly those of women. She’s interested in sharing neglected Jewish histories which counter stereotypes and adding complexity and nuance to representations of the Jewish experience.
‘A Manchester Girlhood’ is a play rooted in Julia’s family’s history. It is based on the lives of three Manchester Jewish women and their Romanian immigrant mother.
Join Julia and the Manchester Jewish Museum for a scratch performance of this powerful play.
