Saul Reichlin

Gimple the Fool


By Isaac Bashevis Singer, Nobel Prize laureate.

Now being performed as a companion piece to Saul's highly successful Sholom Aleichem - Now You're Talking!, Gimpel the Fool received its world premiere at the 2002 Edinburgh International Fringe Festival. A tragi-comic tale of lies, deception and love, it is the story of a "sainted fool". A battleground of the wicked, the grotesque, of simple faith and the elusive truth.
