    One thought on “Plays 1: Chicken Soup With Barley / Roots / I'm Talking About Jerusalem”

    1. The play which brings forth the rootlessness of modern man who just regurgitates the opinion of a few elites. When in the play 'Roots" the protagonist Beaty Briant too duplicates the views of his boyfriend Ronnie(who never appears physically in the play). but a good end where Beatie finds her own voice and is able to articulate herself with her own ideas and thoughts.A play in three acts(Roots) and a good reading ; takes less than 4 hours to go through in a single go.

    2. I learned something about the Jewish working in London; I also learned that some people as in one of the characters will always be 'bums' or layabouts and you cann't doing anything about it, because they are part of the family--its human nature!

    3. I can imagine my late father's generation telling the same stories of East End Jewish life, full of ironic humour.
