Download PDF for this date

Ohel, Palestine Laborite theatrical group, now making a tour of leading European cities, was received here with tremendous acclaim. A distinguished audience was present last night when the group performed Stefan Zweig’s “Jeremiah.”

Among the visitors to the theatre were H. G. Wells, John Drink-water and Zweig himself. The British press was unanimous in praising the performance in the highest terms. The London Morning Post declared “we have nothing on our stage to compare with the intensity of these Jewish players.” All papers praised the Ohel group for having shown London something wholly original and of great value.
