Two staged readings of Jewish folk and fairy tales from around the world were performed in 2014 at the Palo Alto Jewish Community Center in California.
The first, "A Slice of Wry," contained ten tales dramatized for the stage by Enid Davis. Enid directed and produced the play, using head costumes and props. Bradley Davis performed on the clarinet.
The second show, "A Bite of Joy," recreated an East European wedding, complete with a badkin, a wedding jester. Another ten tales were read aloud. This show was also created by Enid Davis.
Thanks to her talented cast, both productions were merrily received.
