The Haggadah


Elizabeth Swados

Published by Samuel French Inc

Large Mixed Cast
This "Passover oratorio" by the composer of Runaways is a disarmingly simple account of the birth and life of Moses, and of the Exodus, done with masks and a clever use of puppetry

"Children should find delight in the puppets . . . is one of (Swados) happier efforts and worthy of becoming a public theatre institution" ~ N.Y. Daily News

This unusual show was originally produced (and later revived) during Passover at Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival Public Theatre
