Daniel Hart

American Tales: Bernard Malamud, ‘Angel Levine’

This fantastical moral allegory, published in 1955, tells the story of a down-on-his-luck tailor who thinks his prayers have been answered when he is visited by Angel Levine, an African-American Jewish angel who promises to ease his many troubles.

Tea Time Stories: ‘Wingate Football Club’

Clive Sinclair’s ‘Wingate Football Club’ story is an elegiac account of an English Jewish childhood. Exploring questions of diaspora Jewish identity, the pain of growing up and, of course, football.

Klez Café

We went back to our roots and celebrated the folktales and folk tunes of Yiddish yore with the Jewish Community Centre’s tribute troupe. Storyteller Mekella Broomberg and actors Daniel Hart and Oliver Meek weaved Yiddish yarns while musicians Laoise Davidson and James Siverly played live Klezmer in this reworked version of the show, a sell out of last season’s programme at the JCC.

In association with the Jewish Community Centre.

The Shel Silverstein Session of Silliness

The all-singing, dancing and storytelling JCC Tribute Troupe brought to life the work of Shel Silverstein. Join Ilana Bendel, Jonny Berliner, Jen Charlton and Daniel Hart in a celebration of the late, great poet, songwriter, musician, composer, cartoonist, screenwriter and author of some of the greatest stories and poems for children, including The Giving Tree, A Light in the Attic and The Unicorn.
