Stella Green


The Edinburgh University Theatre Company presents EZRA, a piece of new writing by Stella Green.

Ezra, his sister Noya, and mother Ellen are three secular Jews clumsily undertaking the task of Seder dinner. Fucking up the order, terrible at Hebrew and using Haribo eggs instead of real ones, they fumble their way through a sacred religious tradition centred around remembering what we often forget. However a much darker memory lurks beneath the meal’s surface.

Written in response to hostile British attitudes towards Jewishness, EZRA is an exploration of secular British Jewishness, trauma, memory and what it means to protect someone from themselves.

Thanks to our friends at Bross Bagels, the first 25 people who arrive on each night will be treated to a free bagel, so make sure to get down to Bedlam early !

13th + 14th November 7:30pm @ Bedlam Theatre
