Actually I am interested in any information regarding Essene stories 
and other texts uncovered by the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. 
Obviously I am attempting to address my considerable ignorance and 
wondering if there is anyone working in puppetry that has looked into 
the texts uncovered in the Scrolls.

I'm also interested in any stories, accounts, experiences that would 
link puppetry to the 19th and 29th century American Yiddish theatre .
