After ten years in development, Saul's dramatisation for the stage of the stories of Sholom Aleichem, has been in production for 6 years, touring 30 cities in the U.K., U.S., Canada, Europe and South Africa, including Off Broadway, Chicago, London and Edinburgh.
Saul Reichlin's sell-out British Premiere at the New End Theatre, Hampstead, was followed by a highly successful 7 week run at the King's Head Theatre London, in January 2002, where the production was nominated for the Ethnic & Multi-Cultural Media award, EMMA (won by Denzel Washington).
Saul received multiple nominations for the Jewish Chronicle Newspaper Award, in the category of theatre, for "The artist contributing most to the Jewish Community in the U.K. in 2002" (won by David Hare). The production was invited to be "The International Presentation" at the 2004 USA Jewish Theatre Companies' annual conference, in Washington DC.
The production has been featured at the Leeds Jewish festival of theatre (3 seasons) and the Iasi festival, Romania.
