Yentl Mendel is the boyish daughter and only child of long widowed Rebbe Mendel. He teaches Talmud to local boys and secretly to Yentl since girls are not allowed to learn the law. When her father dies, Yentl is left all alone. She makes the momentous decision to leave the village and, disguised as a boy and calling herself Anshel, she seeks and gets admitted to a Yeshiva to study. She befriends Avigdor who is engaged to Haddas. Her family calls off the wedding when they discover Avigdor's brother committed suicide. Anshel then finds 'him'-self in the awkward position of being called into service as substitute bridegroom. But Haddas still wants Avigdor. After numerous complications, including Avidor and Yentl falling in love with each other and she telling him her secret, everyone gets what they want in life. Anshel, now Yentl once again, goes off to America to pursue her dream of serious study in Yeshiva, where she will be able to study without needing to hide her identity as a woman

Jack Rosenthal at the BBC ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jack Rosenthal's name stands high in the list of television's greatest dramatists. With a career that started on early episodes of Coronation Street, he was well-advised to launch into writing plays and began by drawing on his own experiences in The Evacuees directed by a young Alan Parker. Jack Rosenthal brought to his writing knowledge of, and love for, the everyman; the man or woman in the street, the worker, labourer, taxi driver, parent and child. Witty, insightful, rich in irony and human observation, even his villains reveal a human side he couldn't resist exploring. These five plays capture a playwright at his zenith, in a range of work that speaks both to his experience and his empathy. Featuring Maureen Lipman, Maria Charles, Adrienne Posta, Jonathan Lynn, John Duttine, Tom Wilkinson, Anna Carteret and Laura Howard, they are sure to be treasured by anyone who appreciates fine drama - or anyone who simply enjoys life
