Her name was Naomi. She came to New York from Russia as a child refugee and settled on the Lower East Side. She survived to become a wife, mother, Communist, and paranoid. She thought the world was poisoning her and slowly her nerves broke and her hold on reality eroded.

Kaddish is a new, original stage adaptation of a groundbreaking poem by Allen Ginsberg, one of the most celebrated figures in contemporary American literature and an early proponent of LGBT rights. Considered by many as Ginsberg’s magnum opus, Kaddish is an intensely personal work—a moving portrait of a woman by her poet son. It is a tragic tale about love and madness, told with ingenuity, compassion, and unflinching honesty.
