B. was born on 6 November
1887 in Ulanow, Galicia, and she received a strong
religious education and attended for six classes and
elementary school. At the age of twelve she came with
her parents to London, and here she became a worker. Out
of love for the theatre B. included herself in a
dramatic circle, which staged the plays "Uriel akosta",
"Zhidovka (The Jewess)", "God, Man and Devil" et al, in
which B. participated, but due to the resistance of her
religious parents, she withdrew from the stage, and she
took to writing sketches, which were published in "Di
tseyt", "Abend-neyes", "Familyen freynd" and "Di post".
Later she wrote plays.
B.'s play "Tserisene nshmut"
was staged by M. D. Vaksman in July 1920 in London's
Pavilion Theatre. B.'s translation of the English play
"Far a shvesters zind" was staged in November 1927 in
the Pavilion Theatre (Director N. Blumental). Not staged
were her plays: "Amerikaner glikn" and "Di folgn fun
B. also wrote and published
in a separate edition songs which were sung or recited
by professional Yiddish actors.
