Örkény presents ‘Ghetto Sheriff’ in total darkness
The Örkény Theater is staging an English-speaking performance about the Holocaust, the biggest trauma of the 20th century in Europe, on February 4, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The play depicts Jewish jokes, songs, and documents from the 1930s and 1940s by reciting them in pitch darkness. The texts were selected by renowned Hungarian director János Mohácsi and the actors together, predominantly from personal reminiscences.
Music was collected, selected and written by Márton Kovács, leader of the Szakértők band. The play lasts 80 minutes, and is performed in total darkness, with no cell phones or smart watches allowed, the theater says. The show starts at 7.30 p.m.
Tickets are available here.
