Abstract (Document Summary)

[Howard Rypp] took the English-language production to this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It was one among more than 2000 plays appearing at the Fringe, and it received a five star review from critic Bill Dunlop. He praised both Rypp's performance as [Gimpel] and his adaptation of the famous tale by Isaac Bashevis Singer.

"Bashevis Singer never makes that clear," says actor/director Rypp, who has been "a huge fan of his for more than 30 years. Gimpel personifies Singer's attitude to Judaism with regard to a human code of conduct in a hostile world."

To advertise the show in Edinburgh, Rypp dressed as a hasid, earlocks and all, and walked around sharing pieces of a hallah with people. When somebody took the bread "Beatriz [his wife] would hand them a flier, and I'd say 'The show is better than the bread'."
