Can A New Prize Encourage Playwrights To Write Scripts In Yiddish?
"The National Yiddish Theater-Folksbiene is announcing a new play contest to encourage writers and directors to conceive and develop new works in Yiddish. The winning play or musical will be showcased during the first New York International Festival of Jewish Performing Arts, in 2015 to commemorate the centennial of Folksbiene (Yiddish for 'people's theater'), the longest continuously running Yiddish theater in the world."
