“Why  are  we  told  to  be  strong  and  shamed  when  we  speak  up?  We’re taught to read, but only from the Talmud or Torah.”

Add one shamefully flirtatious violinist to a blend of interfering mother in laws and bland husbands, sprinkle a dash of patriarchal frustration and voila! It’s the Sabbath dinner at Rochalle’s, and you’re all invited. So light the candles, salt the challah and let’s dig in!

Mountview is one of the UK’s leading drama schools. The annual Catalyst Festival is produced by the students from Mountview’s MA in Creative Producing.
