Chapter Summary

This is the second appendix of the book titled Jewish Theatre: A Global View. It presents a dramatic monologue of Abraham, the prophet who establishes the anthropological unity of the Israelite people. "What is Jewish theatre?" and "Is there Jewish theatre?" are challenging questions laden with issues of identity. As the questions of who is a Jew and what defines Jewishness have become increasingly complex, and as traditional concepts of theatre are changing, with artists pushing new boundaries, we need to remove the dust from the faded truisms of yesteryear and examine old concepts with fresh eyes.

Keywords: Abraham; Israelite people; Jewish theatre
