Serious Theater in the Berkshires

Are you looking for some Serious Theater? I just saw an excellent production of The Puppetmaster of Lodz at the Unicorn Theater in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, part of the Berkshire Theater Group. This moving play, by Gilles Segal, is about a Jewish puppeteer who escaped from a notorious Polish concentration camp, and now, 5 years later, lives in hiding, not believing the war has ended.

The cast of 4 actors are all wonderful, headed by Joby Earle, playing Herr Finkelbaum, the puppetmaster. Earle was also in the War Horse at Lincoln Center in New York. This production ran this summer, and was brought back for a fall run, playing now through October 7th. It should not be missed.
