"MAX" - Short-listed for The 2021 National Biography Award
Max tells of Alex Miller's search -- in turns fearful and elated -- for the elusive past of Max Blatt, a man he loves, who loved him and who taught him that he must write with love. Miller discovers that he is also searching for a defining part of himself, formed by his relation to Max Blatt, but whose significance will remain obscure until he finds Max, complete, in his history.

About the Artist - Galit Klas
Galit was born in the outlying shtetl of Moorabbin and attended Moorabbin Primary School. She grew up in an English and Hebrew speaking household but at 19 she rebelled and studied Yiddish at university, along with her Performing Arts degree.

Galit is the co-artistic director of Kadimah Yiddish Theatre with Evelyn Krape.

She writes, directs, acts and sings; her performances have won her many accolades since entering the entertainment profession, as well as critical acclaim and admiration.

Galit delivers her musical punch in mezzo-soprano, and in a range of languages spanning English, Yiddish, Hebrew and French.

Galit's most recent public show was met with a standing ovation:
"...the real highlight is witnessing Galit Klas’ extraordinary range – from opera-like emotional highs to disco and electro-club diva. What a joy to witness such an incredible performance…"

Join us online in the Mentone Public Library Zoom Room for a truly moving tale of friendship, and the discovery of its foundations concealed in history's darkest chapters for more than half a century.
