Nathanson, Thau-Efeff and Sobler Put On A Nite of Jewish Humour at Aqua Books on March 10

By Rhonda J Spivak,

Aqua Books ( is presenting a night of  Jewish Humour at 7 pm, March 10, at the bookstore on 274 Gary Street.  The event is free. The evening features Michael Nathanson, Daniel Thau-Eleff, and Alix Sobler, and promises to be a fantastic, one-of-a-kind event (also, in part, promoting Nathanson's new play).

A Night of Jewish Humour
Playwrights Michael Nathanson, Alix Sobler and Daniel Thau-Eleff
Michael Nathanson’s Governor General Award-nominated play, Talk, opened the Winnipeg Jewish Theatre’s 2007-2008 season and was a critically acclaimed production in Toronto in March 2010. Michael’s plays have been seen in New York, Dallas and at festivals across Canada. Michael is the Artistic Producer of Winnipeg Jewish Theatre and a member of the Playwrights Guild of Canada. Michael lives in Winnipeg and is married to Rebecca Brask, and has two glorious children, Zevi and Naomi.

Daniel Thau-Eleff is a Winnipeg-based playwright, actor and producer of the Moving Target Theatre Company. Past plays include Remember the Night and Three Ring Circus: Israel, the Palestinians and My Jewish Identity. Daniel's current project is King's Park, which premieres on March 17, 2011. Daniel is also an activist with Winnipeg Copwatch and Independent Jewish Voices.

Alix Sobler is a writer and performer, originally from New York who is living out every little girl's dream to grow up and move to Winnipeg to try and make it big. Her Jewish humour can often be heard on CBC One’s Definitely Not The Opera. In 2010, she performed her solo show Jason Neufeld is Impotent at the Minneapolis Jewish Humor Festival, and her comedy Some Things You Keep premiered at the Winnipeg Jewish Theatre the same year. She is definitely Jewish, and apparently funny, and happy to be in such good company.

"If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning."
