Pure PolyEsther poster, photographs, and song (1992, 1999)
Pure Polyesther is a hilarious and subversive retelling of the Old Testament story of Esther. The Theater Offensive’s purimspiel mixes slapstick, klezmer, cross-dressing, outrageous scenery-chewing, and queer coupling with an earnest message about being true to yourself and your community. First staged as a live-action production in 1992, Pure Polyesther has acquired a loyal following for its annual presentation during the festival of Purim. From the Theater Offensive records.
