Tales of Chelm: To Catch a Thief
The second in JArts TheatreWorks’ series Tales of Chelm, the classic stories of the imaginary town and their “not-so-wise” inhabitants. The episode features puppets.
“To Catch a Thief” explores the friendship that inadvertently blossoms between Gedaliah the Goniff and Zalman Shlomo the Gate Keeper. Told entirely through puppetry, the episode opens with Gedaliah stealing a coin purse from Reb Fishel, the town mayor. Zalman Shlomo attempts to pursue Gedaliah, only to be tricked by him in a variety of idiotic ways. As the narrative progresses, Gedaliah’s plans to evade Shlomo become increasingly ridiculous.
