Laura Adler’s Last Love Affair

Rita Zohar (Mrs. Moskowitz and the Cats) plays Laura Adler, the beautiful middle-aged star of an obscure Yiddish theatre troupe in Israel, sustained by a loyal but ageing audience. While reveling in the camaraderie of her colleagues and a fling with a younger man, Laura is confronted with her mortality, leading her to rediscover her commitment to the theatre. Fans of Yiddish theatre will delight in Heffner’s keen eye for so many of its theatrical conventions. An understated gem that truly deserves to be rediscovered.
