About the event
In The Tenth Man, a small group of Jewish worshipers feverishly attempts to gather a minyan (quorum of ten) for their morning prayers. One member arrives with their granddaughter in tow, claiming she has been possessed by a dybbuk (malevolent spirit). Another desperately recruits a non-believing Jewish passerby (with a profound hangover) off the street. What ensues is an ironically funny and quietly profound setting to have their faith (and skepticism) tested.
