The Rise and Fall of The King of Lampedusa

So I’ve finally decided my MA dissertation topic/title. I am going to be focusing on London Yiddish theatre during the Second World War, mainly looking at a play called The King of Lampedusa [der kenig fun lampeduse]. I’m hoping to see why the play was such a huge success (it was out of the ordinary to be SO successful…) and then why it failed only two years later. I’m so excited :] It’s due in two months so I have already presented my initial research at a seminar and have completed a large amount of archive research.

I hope you are all good :) Once all this is over I can’t wait to get back to posting as often as I would like!
