The Story

‘Fiddler on the Roof’ is a story of a family and the village in which they live a simple life. It is set in Tsarist Russia on the eve of the Russian Revolution, when everything is changing, yet the need to uphold traditions still exists.

It tells the story of a man and his relationship with his family, his people, the enemies of his people and his special relationship with God.

It is about love, of a man for a woman, of men for their fellow men and for their birthplace.

It is about pride and dignity, sorrow and oppression.

It is about the generation gap, alive then as it is now.

It is about 1905 but it could be anytime and anywhere.
