A DAY OF PLEASURE (5 June 2011)

120 guests listened attentively to stories by Isaac Bashevis Singer
performed by actor Stuart Richman. London Born Stuart was
a founder member of the Liverpool Everyman Theatre in 1964.
While he has played theatre, film, television and radio over the years,
in venues large and small,  this was his first performance in a
synagogue. He selected five stories from the Singer book
'A Day of Pleasure' which recorded the author's early life in
Warsaw, portraying a way of life that has all but disappeared.
