Mentshn by Sholem Aleichem
by Translation/Adaptation by Ellen Perecman and Clay McLeod Chapman
directed by Marc Geller
Jobs are hard to come by, so Madame Gold s servants [Yiddish word Mentshn means servants and people]have limited options. To keep their jobs, they have to be willing to maintain the status quo by relinquishing their self-respect and free will. But how much abuse can they be expected to tolerate? Servants are people too, aren't they?
