WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Two sisters separated during childhood, one a survivor of Nazi concentration camps, the other brought up as an American, are reunited in New York City in 1946 after a separation of almost 20 years. A drama of wrenching feeling and great beauty, it not only evokes the devastation of the Holocaust, but it goes beyond to become a universal portrayal of a family filled with conflict and emotion. It is a powerful and emotionally charged tale of sustenance, hope, and the belief that from a broken and bitter past, a better future may be born. "...brilliantly subtle take on a simple moving story..." - Jewish Theatre News "...beautifully crafted play about love, family lost and found...touches our heart..."- The Wall Street Jounal
