Robin Kingsland – Fiddler on the Roof

Robin features as the jolly innkeeper Mordcha in Fiddler on the Roof at the Frinton Summer Theatre, running from the 14th to the 19th of August.

Headed by director Edward Max, Frinton Summer Theatre is the oldest still active Repertory theatre in the country and has had actors such as Vanessa Redgrave, David Suchet, Timothy West and Gary Oldman walk through its doors in the past on their way to stardom. 

For the first time since the theatre’s beginnings in 1937 they are staging a production on Frinton’s gorgeous Greensward, a stretch of greenery along the seafront. 

This now-iconic musical takes place in the Pale of Settlement, the region in the western Russian Empire where Jews were allowed to have permanent residence, and centres on Tevye, a Jewish father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the his family’s lives.
