The classic story of the Golem, told on numerous occasions in plays and books, is amongst the most recognisable aspects of Jewish folklore and its narrative themes continue to enchant audiences in the 21st century.
However, a show simply titled Golem managed to take the idea and present it in a unique and refreshing way when it was staged in Austria and, more recently, the Young Vic Theatre. The production, from 1927, managed to attract great critical acclaim and as a result a transfer to the West End was inevitable.
And so now it is the turn of Theatreland patrons to witness this compelling, eye-catching and memorable production as it runs at the Trafalgar Studios 1 in Whitehall from April 2015.
Golem introduces us to the character or Robert Robertson and through the course of the play we see how he loses control of his life when he utilises a Golem to help him with his tasks throughout the day. He begins with the original model but events take their turn when he decides to take a step up and utilise a Golem 2.
1927, who have put the show together, are a well known group from Hackney and with Golem they have created something that will ensure their name is held in high regards in West End circles.
The cast includes Charlotte Dubery alongside Shamira Turner, Will Close, Lillian Henley and Rose Robinson. They work under the direction of Suzanne Andrade.
The Trafalgar Studios 1 has been the home of the Trafalgar Transformed season in recent months, with its most recent show The Ruling Class playing until April, whilst The Father runs at the sister space of Trafalgar Studios 2 during the same period.
Golem, meanwhile, runs at Trafalgar Studios 1 from Wednesday 22nd April 2015 (previews from Tuesday 14th April 2015).
