The semi-official Government theatre here will shortly produce a play on the life of Benjamin Disraeli which was written by the successful young playwright, Raymundo Magalhaes Jr., as a protest against persecution of Jews. The play, titled “A Jew,” will be produced simultaneously in the Argentine and Portugal. It is also being translated into English.
