Tevya

TevyeMaurice Schwartz's adaptation of the classic Sholem Aleichem play centers on Khave, Tevye the Dairyman's daughter, who falls in love with Fedye, the son of a Ukrainian peasant. Her courtship and marriage pit Tevye's love for his daughter against his deep-seated faith and loyalty to tradition. The clash between tradition and modernity, parental authority and love, customs and enlightenment are foreshadowed by the antisemitism of the rural community. Tevye's world is a microcosm of the larger world of Russian Jewry in the early 1900s.
