Check Out OY!, The New Play at the Actors' Gang Theatre in Culver City

The Actors’ Gang is premiering OY!, the work of author, professor, theorist and critic Hélène Cixous, best known as a playwright of epic work with Le Théâtre du Soleil. 

The story of two German Jewish sisters who compare memories of their experiences of the period of Nazism in Europe, here's how the Actors' Gang describes the work:

Through Oy, playwright Hélène Cixous interrogates the question of forgiveness, the work of memories and transmission to new generations, and the state of modern racism throughout the world. Two German sisters have accepted an invitation from the mayor of Osnabrück, the city of their youth in Germany to testify about their experiences before the younger German generation.  Upon returning to Paris from Osnabrück, the elderly sisters try to make something of the swirl of emotions, opinions and memories that have surfaced.  As they cook in the kitchen together, they talk about all the things they were not able to express in Osnabrück.  Through their simple, flavorful work together, they begin to unravel the complexities of a society’s internalized racism – the broad anti-Semitism that so darkly colored their past.  Based on close family members of the playwright, the interaction between these fictional sisters is honest, emotional, humorous and compelling. 

OY! plays Thursday and Saturday evenings at 8 pm – as well as a 2 pm matinee this Sunday and other Sundays in July.  Tickets for all shows are $20 tickets in advance, but Thursdays are Pay-What-You-Can.  For tickets, click HERE
