Moishe Yukle Bernstein was a poor pedlar who bought land near Pontypool, Ontario, a tiny Protestant town outside Toronto. The spot became a summer getaway for Jewish garment workers from Kensington Market -- and for six decades, families made their way to the small village, where they shared dreams, memories, and a pathetic waterfront. With a vast array of characters, songs, and a healthy dose of humour, The Right Road to Pontypool is a unique and moving depiction of the Jewish experience in Canada.

Alex Poch-Goldin's work has been produced internationally, and he has developed and produced work at numerous Canadian theatres. His plays include: Yahrzeit (Toronto Jewish Playwriting Award); The Right Road to Pontypool, The Bad Luck Bank Robbers, The Life of Jude, Jim and Shorty, and Internazionale. His plays Cringeworthy and This Hotel were both nominated for Dora Awards for Outstanding New Play. Alex has also created several dance/opera theatricals including the full-length opera The Shadow. He has developed projects for CBC Radio, Bravo! Television, and was a nominee for the Siminovitch Prize for Playwriting. Alex is also an award-winning actor and has worked extensively in theatre, film and television. He lives in Toronto with his delightful daughter, Chloë Babette.

"Remarkable new play...absolutely unforgettable..." (Globe and Mail)
