Event details

The Parkes Institute is a proud supporter of Antisemitism - a (((musical))), a new musical written and composed by Parkes PGR Uri Agnon.

Arriving in pursuit of a calm life, our unsuspecting hero is thrown into a wild journey full of absurd characters — his bickering aunts in Finchley, a drunken lord and a couple of kidnappers who think they’ve captured Uri Geller for ransom.

Will he learn a deep lesson about identity, power and privilege?
Will he find the meaning of Jewishness?
Will he unpack the mysteries of British subtext and euphemism?
Will everyone just leave him alone?

Sure to get under everyone’s skin, Antisemitism tackles one of the most explosive topics in British politics through song and dance. A quick-paced political satire that uses Jewish humour and genre-bending music to produce a nuanced, fierce depiction of new-old hate from the perspective of the eternal outsider/insider: the wandering Jew.


For one night only, catch a performance of Uri Agnon's Antisemitism - a (((musical))) at Southampton's God's House Tower, taking place on November 1 at 7:30pm.
