Time and the Beast

by Marina Shron

Inspired partially by the biblical story of Jacob and the sisters Rachel and Leah, who become his wives, the play follows the changing dynamics between the three characters as their lives keep spinning in time. The story begins to unravel on a first, mythical isle where Jacob, Rachel, and Leah first meet and form their frail, yet long-lasting triangle. Coming to an abortive end, the story then picks up on a historical isle, Ukraine, 1918, then on another, Germany, 1943, and yet another – New York, the present day. Rachel, Leah, and Jacob mature in History — as History itself comes of age.
