It Could Always Be Worse
A funny Yiddish tale of a Jewish family unhappy with their living conditions. A mother, father, baby and two children all living in a very small house are fed up with their overcrowded, noisy home. They seek out the local rabbi who advises solutions and tries to tell them that “it could always be worse.”

Will this family ever learn to be happy with what they have? Come to Fairyland and find out! This show features lively klezmer music for a fully spirited performance! Puppets designed by Elizabeth Luce. Rod puppets created by Randal Metz. Scenery by Lewis Mahlmann. Script by Shana Barchas, Inspired by a traditional Yiddish folktale.

At Children’s Fairyland, 699 Bellevue Ave, Oakland, CA
