Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre


Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre

The Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre, a branch of Montreal's Segal Centre for Performing Arts was founded in 1958 by Dora Wasserman (June 1919– December 2003), a Ukrainian actress, playwright, and theatre director.

Their first play was The Innkeeper [1]. Dora Wasserman[2] directed over 70 plays during a period spanning over four decades. One review [3] said that "The most successful of these was A Bintel Brief, based on immigrants' letters to the advice column of the Jewish Daily Forward" (A Yiddish Language newspaper).
