Mancunian Rhapsody is a comedy about a Mancunian Jewish woman, Rivki Pashinsky, with a guilty pleasure for Freddie Mercury music.
Her son, the nerdy Rabbi Michael, plans to marry the Brooklyn born, alopecia-ridden, lisp-inflicted and overweight Devorah Feigenblum, until devastating rumours ruin everybody’s plans. Religious identity, forbidden familial and sexual relationships, betrayal and the power of gossip are all showcased through parody and popular music!
The show not only satirises the extremes of Jewish life, but also the role of musical theatre itself. Debra Tammer was inspired to write the play after watching the ITV documentary Strictly Kosher. The work-in-progress of the play was the one-to-watch show as part of the Camden Fringe Theatre Festival in London 2014 and sold out every night. The show will be touring to Manchester, Bournemouth, London and the Edinburgh Festival for 2015.
