A world premiere for Watford Palace Theatre this February – writer Daniel Kanaber tells Judi Herman about his bittersweet new play Shiver
“It’s either a sad play about love or a funny play about loss”, says Daniel Kanaber, describing Shiver. Three men gather to remember Sadie, who has just died, her husband, Mordecai, a lapsed Jew, her atheist son Ben and Joshua, a trainee Orthodox Rabbi entrusted with officiating as the mourners remember her in the tradition of sitting shiva, the first seven days of mourning. When Judi Herman met up with Danny to find out more about the play, they did indeed find themselves shivering as they recorded outdoors on a wet winter’s day!
