The Golem of Pittsburgh

Written in the wake of the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue shooting, The Golem of Pittsburgh is an adaptation of the traditional Jewish folktale of the golem. The Golem of Pittsburgh melds folklore and fantasy with reality and reflection on the ways we react to acts of hate.

Originally produced in Playground XVI: A Festival of Student Work at Carnegie Mellon University.
